Foodvalley Summit The Protein Plan(et)
June 28, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$95,00
A global “return” to balance in protein consumption; less animal and more vegetable. During the third international edition of the Foodvalley Summit: The Protein Plan(et), on 17 October, food producers, growers, breeders, investors, research institutes and the government are coming together, in Wageningen, to share solutions, to strengthen the connections between meat, fish, dairy and vegetable and to find new business partners. This edition is an initiative of Foodvalley NL in collaboration with Wageningen University & Research, KeyGene and The Protein Cluster.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
The Foodvalley Summit program is built around three themes: The Bigger Picture, The Consumer Perspective and Growing, Breeding, Soil. The Bigger Picture gives the visitor a holistic view of protein transition, with attention to the current state of the transition and national and international challenges. An Expert Panel will discuss the National Protein Plan (in development) and how the Netherlands will contribute to European protein goals from its knowledge-intensive ecosystem.
THE CONSUMER PERSPECTIVE
How can consumers be tempted to consume more vegetable protein? What are the requirements for new products such as substitutes for cheese and fish? What role does the food environment play? The Consumer Perspective theme includes best practices in behavioral change, taking into account consumers’ food-related routines.
GROWING BREEDING SOIL
Which protein-rich crops are suitable for our climate? What innovative crops are in the pipline? And how might future earnings models look? The protein transition is not only about increasing vegetable protein use, but also about local production. In the Growing, Breeding, Soil theme, out attention is on plants and animals, soil and biodiversity.
