Commercialize a Scalable & Cost-Effective Alternative Protein Product With Speed to Market
January 31 - February 2, 2023
Bringing Your Innovative Alternative Protein Product to Consumers Through Advanced Fermentation Capabilities, Viable Commercial Partnership & Regulatory Compliance
With a rise in flexitarians and demand for quality and sustainable protein sources, investment is pouring into the fermentation enabled alternative protein space, with fermentation-based protein companies securing US$1.7 billion in investments last year. Forbes have forecasted this to rise to 36.3 billion by 2030. However, 9 in 10 fermentation-based food brands still fail to make it in the market.
The 3rd annual Fermentation-Enabled Alternative Protein Summit, as the only industry-led forum uniting the entire biomass and precision fermentation ecosystem, will return to San Francisco as an in-person meeting. Hosting 150+ key decision-makers from biotech and food tech, multinational consumer packaged goods, independent food brands, and ingredient suppliers, this 3-days summit will help you scale-up and successfully commercialize fermentation-enabled alternative with speed to market.
Emulating on previous years’ success, the 2023 summit remains the focal point for this fast-growing industry. We are excited to expand our content coverage to give you the most comprehensive, A-Z guide with 2 dedicated streams, 35+ expert speakers to help Technical Scientists and Commercial leaders across the fermentation protein value chain:
Technical Stream: Improve your alternative proteins’ developability and manufacturability
Discover the latest advancements in biomass and precision fermentation, bioreactor design, GMO debates and scale up process development
Commercial Stream: Navigate the complex regulatory and partnership landscape, labelling and consumer perception
