Future Protein Sources – ACBC Vic & CSIRO

22 Dec 2020

ACBC Vic is proud to partner with CSIRO to bring you a forward-thinking session on future protein including key opportunities for your business.

The food sector is undergoing a quiet revolution as healthy, nutritious and environmentally friendly foods gain an increasing share of the food sector market.

The vast Chinese market, accounting for 27% of the world’s meat consumption by volume is emerging as the best opportunity for plant-based alternative protein products as increasingly health-conscious Chinese consumers subvert traditional market demands.

Additionally, as global focus moves towards the environment and sustainability, there is a growing awareness of the benefits of reduced meat consumption and production.

Gain exclusive insight regarding a broad range of protein sources, food production and nutrition capabilities, and how CSIRO, along with commercial companies is developing new types of sustainable plant-based protein products that meet market needs.

Guests will gain insider access to sector experts in both research and industry to learn about the market, opportunities and science & technology innovation in this huge growth industry.
