    IFTNEXT Virtual Panel Discussion: Why is there Rapid Expansion in the Alternative Protein Market?

    Join experts in discussing new technologies and exploring both the challenges and opportunities to bring new Alternative Protein products to market for an increasingly diverse consumer base. 

    When: September 24, 2019, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. CDT

    Meeting Details

    There is a huge global movement of consumers seeking alternative protein options well beyond the vegetarian/vegan niche. While bean burgers and tofu have been popular for decades, the market for novel innovations from nut milks to cellular agriculture is on fire. Join us for a virtual panel discussion that brings together experts from three different sectors to discuss the current and future state of the rapidly changing landscape in alternative proteins.  

    We’ll discuss plant-based, cell-based, and fermentation technologies and explore both the challenges and opportunities to bring new products to market for an increasingly diverse consumer base seeking new alternatives to their diets.
