Regulation, scaling and investment will be amongst the many talking points at this year’s AltProteins23 conference, taking place in Melbourne on 4 October.
Following on from the inaugural 2022 event, AltProteins23 is hosted by the alternative protein industry think tank, Food Frontier.
The one-day conference will see manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, investors, retailers, foodservice operators, academics and policymakers in the one room, learning about the latest opportunities and challenges in both the plant-based and cellular agriculture sectors.
Food Frontier’s founder and chair, Thomas King, said the program has been expanded in response to feedback from last year’s event.
“Delegates can expect more concurrent sessions and global perspectives providing thought-provoking conversations and insights across [the] plant-based meats, cultivated meats and precision fermentation industries.
“Food Frontier is well aware of the issues and challenges facing the sector and we’re confident we’ve created a program that delivers on most, if not all, of them, as well as allowing time for networking,” he said.
Program highlights will include:
- Consumer acceptance and education
- Asia market opportunities
- Scaling and valur chain gaps
- Cutting edge protein innovations
- Growth, investment and future forecasting

AltProteins23 will be held on 4 October at Sofitel on Collins in Melbourne.
