Are investors throwing silly money at so-called 'alternative' proteins right now, or is it just more efficient and sustainable to grow protein in bioreactors vs crops or animals?

Find out tomorrow (Sept 15) in a FREE 60-minute webinar,​ moderated by FoodNavigator-USA editor Elaine Watson, which brings together three exciting startups, an investor in alternative proteins, and a product innovation specialist, to explore the market potential for novel protein sources and discuss how to communicate their benefits to consumers.

  • Event:​ Protein 2.0 from plant-based to fungi, lemna, bacteria, and more
  • Date​: Wednesday September 15, 2021
  • Time​: 9.30am PT/12.30pm ET
  • Duration of webinar​: 60 minutes

AGENDA​: In our debate​, moderated by FoodNavigator-USA editor Elaine Watson, we’ll discuss:

  • Protein potential:​ Assessing the market opportunity for plant-based and ‘alternative’ proteins

  • Yield and sustainability​: What’s the greenest, most efficient way to make high-quality food protein?
  • Comparing proteins​: Taste, performance, nutrition
