Future Proteins summit 2017

Organised by Southbank Events this 1-day Summit will look at key food protein trends and discuss plant, marine and insect-based alternatives. The day will also focus on current consumer attitudes to alternative protein sources and the challenges of taste, texture and sensory perception as well as ingredient application and scale-up.

Summit Chair Steve Osborne of the Aurora Ceres Partnership said: “A greater global demand for sustainable protein is driving the food industry to investigate alternatives. From insects to algae, the range is ever expanding as is the functionality demanded from them. The Future Proteins Summit 2017 will set out to explore the technology and opportunities that exist in this ever growing sector.“

Speakers at the Summit include keynote speaker Professor Tim Lang, Professor of Food Policy, City University as well as Mosa Meet, Peck Drinks, the Carbon Trust, Forum for the Future, Marks & Spencer, TNO, Lux Research, Gold & Green Foods & Eat Grub.

    It’s great to see that the talk on edible insects is increasing. I started including insects to my diet one year ago in eating cricket pasta (http://www.bugsolutely.com) and cricket flour protein bars. Feeling great about eating healthy and sustainable foods!
