In early October 2023, we completed our first representative consumer survey

 

Our aim was to assess the current needs and preferences of the population in the context of plant-based diets. This was a very important project for us, as Hungary is typically missing from the map in terms of data in this area.

The semi-finals of the public catering competition have been completed

 

With the support of the Association of National Society of Conservationists (MTVSZ), we were able to participate in this year's public catering competition. The Hungarian Prison Service joined the competition for the first time, inviting NÉGYOSZ to mentor their team. This year the main message of the competition was sustainability.

As a result of our patronage, 2 out of 3 of our teams qualified for next year's finals, thus introducing our organisation to the participants.

Call for proposals to support the promotion of plant-based nutrition in Hungary

Expanding our membership

 

We are proud that in our young, one-year existence, we have gained as members such major players in the plant-based products and rotary processing industry as Danone, as well as Naszálytej Tejfeldolgozó és Kereskedelmi Kft. and Pápai Hús.

In addition to the larger companies, our Association has also grown this year with the addition of small and medium sized companies that create exceptional value.

What's next?

Delighted to announce that NÉGYOSZ is evolving into a stronger and more dynamic organization, brimming with exciting plans and goals for 2024 and beyond. Throughout this year, we have achieved numerous successes in the realms of animal welfare, sustainability, and support for plant-based businesses.

Our aim

is to further expand awareness of plant-based diets and sustainability while providing support to those who share similar values. Additionally, fantastic opportunities await those who join us to actively participate in achieving our common goals.
