About Green Monday Ventures
The “green food industry” is perhaps the most impactful and visible component in the course of the transition towards a green economy. Awareness has reached a new level as to the impact the livestock industry has created in terms of greenhouse gas emission, water footprint and food production inefficiency, while affecting our health on an individual level. GMV is of the view that plant-based food items are important alternatives (if not just an addition) to meat. The plant-based consumer segment is where the most ground-breaking and compelling food trend is taking place.
