The CSIRO will host a two day symposium in June, exploring the opportunities and roadblocks in protein production.
Relevant for all professionals in the Australian food and agribusiness sector, including government, universities, consultants, investors and retailers, Protein Futures will be held on 14 and 15 June at Brisbane’s Hotel Grand Chancellor.
It will provide an open forum for leading protein and food scientists to discuss the challenges and opportunities of protein production in parternship with industry stakeholders and thought leaders.
Protein Futures will explore how novel protein ingredients meet the nutritional requirements of humans, livestock and acquaculture, while also examining the social science and sustainability considerations critical to alternative proteins’ acceptance amongst consumers.
While a detailed program isn’t yet available, the two day symposium will include:
* Keynote speakers presenting on the National Protein Roadmap, the role of traditional protein vs future protein
* Expert presentations on current and complementary protein opportunities, circular economy, aquaculture, plant protein, precision fermentation, traceability and food security.
* Virtual tours of cutting edge science facilities
* Fireside chats on emerging topics
* Networking opportunities
