Growing demand for alternative meat is inspiring a new generation of innovators to bring sustainable solutions to the table. David Yeung, founder and CEO of Hong Kong-based Green Monday, is a pioneer of the plant-based movement who is exporting his company’s green alternatives worldwide with a popular vegan “Spam” called OmniPork and a new line of plant-based seafood. With backing from high-profile figures including director James Cameron, Green Monday’s plant-based meats are now available in 20 countries including the United States. What will it take for plant-based meats to go fully mainstream and, critically, how does it taste? Join us for a special lunch discussion at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club to hear from Yeung and savour a delicious meat-free meal. Moderated by Shibani Mahtani, FCC Correspondent Member and Washington Post Southeast Asia and Hong Kong bureau chief.
David Yeung is the Founder & CEO of Green Monday Group, a multi-faceted social venture with the mission to take on the world’s most pressing crises of climate change, food insecurity and public health. With the global sustainability movement initiated by Green Monday Foundation, the revolutionary food technology innovation in OmniFoods and OmniPork, the market transforming plant-based retail, dining and distribution network in Green Common, and the impact investment arm in Green Monday Ventures, Yeung has pioneered a one-of-a kind integrated platform that engages and empowers millions of people, along with public and private sectors, towards green awareness, action and economy.
