Scaling up, sourcing talent, accessing funding and consumer acceptance. These are some – but not all – of the hurdles being navigated by Australia’s burgeoning alternative protein industry.
In collaboration with Sydney University’s Alternate Protein CRC, Future Alternative is conducting a survey to help identify some of the most significant impediments to growth for Australia’s plant-based and alternative protein sector.
You can complete the survey here.
The findings will be shared at the R&D Deep Dive event, taking place on 15 November at Sydney University.
“R&D means different things to different organisations, and each organisation has different R&D needs. We would like to gauge where the industry is situated in terms of its R&D needs, and the insights gained from this survey will be shared with attendees on the day of the event,” said Andrew Kemp, Sydney University’s Business Development Manager (Faculty of Science).
The R&D Deep Dive event will see a line-up of impressive speakers from a wide range of industry sectors including manufacturing, research, government and trade.
Speakers will include:
- Brent Kaiser, Director of Sydney Institute of Agriculture
- Kristi Riordan, Co-Founder, Harvest B
- Michelle Colgrave, Future Protein Mission, CSIRO
- Najib Lawand, Founding Director, Export Connect
- Linda Romanovska, Senior Manager, PwC, ESG, Climate Change & Sustainable Finance
The discussion topics will focus on Australia’s R&D landscape, examining opportunities for collaboration and optimising the process of going to market.
This event is supported by the NSW Government.
