Different proteins, whether or not sourced from crops, yeast, fungi, or cultured animal cells, are predicted take a higher share of the market within the coming years. However can they honestly compete with their predecessors on diet, performance, and accessibility?
This shall be mentioned and extra at Local weather Good Meals 2023, our three-day digital occasion spanning 19-21 September, the place we’ll be asking how the meals business will help drive a transition in the direction of sustainable meals sourcing, manufacturing, and consumption.

Every day the session will run from 2pm CET to 5pm CET and can embrace interactive shows, panel discussions, viewers Q&As, fireplace chats and start-up pitches.
21 September: Highlight on different protein
The magic of mycoprotein
Mycoprotein makes use of 90% much less land and water and produces 98% much less carbon emissions than equal beef merchandise, based on evaluation by the Carbon Belief. Marlow Meals boasts an extended and profitable heritage having produced mycoprotein for nearly 40 years. The core ingredient in over 100 Quorn branded merchandise, it is usually having fun with success with QSR and foodservice companions together with KFC throughout Europe, Greggs within the UK and Fast eating places in Belgium.

Down on the aesthetic meat farm
The FoodNavigator crew visits a UK-based cultivated meat firm, Ivy Farm Applied sciences, to learn the way cell-based manufacturing affords a extra environmentally option to fulfill the world’s urge for food for meat. We’ll have a look first hand on the levels concerned in making what many take into account a marvel of science and listen to from CEO Richard Dillon why rules urgently must be overhauled to permit this business to flourish.
Speaker: Richard Dillon, CEO, Ivy Farm Applied sciences
Novel Meals: The regulatory panorama
Cultivated meat and animal-free dairy merchandise are on the menu in different jurisdictions, however not right here within the EU. What’s the maintain up? Regulatory skilled Katia Merten-Lenz sheds gentle on the intricacies of novel meals, and what EFSA’s approval course of means for next-gen meals on residence soil.
Speaker: Katia Merten-Lentz, Lawyer, Meals Regulation Science & Companions
Are customers prepared for cultivated meat and precision fermentation dairy?
Shopper acceptance of novel proteins is essential to their success. With slaughter-free meat and animal-free dairy but to enter the EU market, a rising quantity of analysis is investigating client attitudes to those next-gen proteins. Are Europeans hungry for cultivated meat and precision fermentation dairy? Tune in for the most recent findings.
Speaker: Chris Bryant, PhD, Director, Bryant Analysis
Pioneering the protein transition for the longer term
Swapping out typical proteins for local weather friendlier options has the potential to decrease a model’s carbon footprint considerably. How are innovators rethinking ingredient manufacturing for the lots? Can they honestly compete with their predecessors on diet, performance, and accessibility?

Local weather Good Meals will run from 2pm CET to 5pm CET from 19-21 September as we ask how the meals business will help drive a transition in the direction of sustainable meals sourcing, manufacturing, and consumption.
19 September: Local weather Good Sourcing
Components are a serious contributor to FMCGs’ carbon footprints, making sourcing practices essential to assembly carbon discount deadlines. However cultivation shouldn’t be the one consideration: international provide chains are more and more stricken by disruption and have lengthy been linked to human rights violations. How can sustainability be embedded into international provide chains?
On Day 1 of Local weather Good Meals, we’ll be asking how finest to mitigate in opposition to provide chain disruptions linked to droughts, floods or struggle; what sustainability laws means for meals majors; and whether or not regenerative agriculture can actually save the day.
20 September: Local weather Good Manufacturing
Feeding rising populations inside planetary boundaries means producing extra, with much less. How can meals and beverage makers improve output with fewer pure assets? From making the swap to ‘inexperienced’ power to implementing water saving methods and rethinking packaging design, we analyse the initiatives decarbonising manufacturing.
On Day 2 of Local weather Good Meals, we’ll be asking how meals majors can decarbonise their direct emissions; the place water inefficiencies are most prevalent and the way reliance may be diminished; what the longer term holds for plastic-free packaging; and whether or not we should always improve our give attention to the blue economic system for sustainable diet.
21 September: Local weather Good Consumption
Buyers typically say they need ‘greener’ foods and drinks, however don’t all the time act with sustainability front-of-mind. Addressing boundaries to local weather sensible consumption shall be key to reaching meals system transformation. Shopper demand can be a vital piece of the meals tech puzzle, with pioneers banking on us innovating our method out of the local weather disaster. Are Europeans hungry for lab-grown meals?
On Day 3 of Local weather Good Meals, we’ll be asking what influence manufacturers have on discouraging meals waste within the residence; how sustainability credentials can finest stand out on the shelf; whether or not European customers are prepared for cultivated meat and precision fermentation dairy; and what the longer term holds for different protein.
