Future Proteins Summit 2017
March 30, 2017
New Protein Innovation & Market Development
Concern over future food and nutritional security is rapidly rising on the global agenda amidst studies showing crop yields are far from increasing at the rates needed to meet projected demands for 2050. It is estimated 60% more food will be required by mid-century to feed a projected 9.6 or so billion people, assuming a continuing increase in demand for meat, dairy products and vegetable oils and no significant reduction in food waste.
- How can we meet the protein needs of 9 million people in a sustainable, healthy & environmentally friendly way?
- How can the food industry tap into growing consumer appetites new foods, tastes & plant-based foods?
- What is the actual potential for alternative proteins to move into the mainstream & gain scale to make a larger commercial impact?
These are just three of the questions that over 26 international speakers will review in London on 30 March 2017 at the first-ever Future Proteins Summit. Join an unrivalled community of food industry members, expert speakers & peers to share critical lessons & cross-fertilise ideas – all with the aim of assessing & unlocking the potential of the future protein market.
