AltProteins returns later this year

Food Frontier’s AltProteins conference is back for another year, with early bird tickets now available.

To be held on Thursday, 10 October in Melbourne, AltProteins 24 is promoted as being essential for anyone involved or intrigued by the plant-based foods, cultivated meat, or precision fermentation industries. This includes those in primary production, investment, research and development, academia, government, manufacturing, foodservice, and retail.

Food Frontier CEO Dr Simon Eassom says without a doubt sustainability is top of mind for many food businesses and despite it being an inherent benefit of alternative protein products, it’s still an issue that manufacturers, ingredient suppliers and retailers need to get their head around.

“We also need governments to implement policy and funding, we need businesses to invest and collaborate, we need academia and research to prioritise R&D, and ultimately, we need consumers to adopt more sustainable foods,” he says.

“AltProteins 24 will include a debate on the most efficient strategies for advancing the food-as-a-climate-change-issue agenda and promoting alternative proteins as a viable solution. We look forward to this discussion which will involve experts from many different disciplines.”

AltProteins 24 will feature workshops on accessing global markets, cellular agriculture bridging evidence gaps with accountability, and the pressing challenges and solutions facing cultivated meat.

Last year, the conference drew in a crowd of more than 400 delegates.

AltProteins 24 welcomes back the Victorian government as lead sponsor through support from Agriculture Victoria, Global Victoria and Invest Victoria. Other sponsors include Merck, Eden Brew, Tetra Pak, Rockwell Automation, v2food and Unigrain.
