Protein is in the global spotlight as we strive to meet the nutritional needs of a population set to hit 9.5 billion by 2050 and European food and protein markets will evolve considerably in the coming years.
'High' protein is still hot in Europe and Western worlds and consumer awareness of the benefits of plant-based foods is growing. Debates on availability of proteins and impact on food security, economy and geo-politics, as well as the impact of protein production on the climate will intensify. Global transition is imminent in the food, pet food and feed industries.
All this and more will be discussed at Bridge2Food’s 10th Protein Summit 2017, 26-28 September 2017 (Reims, France). Europe’s largest annual protein industry networking platform will bring together Industry and Public Policy Leaders to discuss, co-operate, build and shape future strategies.
** New for 2017**
Protein 2030 Summit on the Future Protein Agenda in Europe and globally to get a better understanding on the various protein initiatives in Europe and around the world. Growing more plant protein in Europe is important from a sustainability, climate and self-sufficiency point of view.
Demand for plant protein ingredients is increasing and there are many economic opportunities. Consumers are seeking more healthy and sustainable diets and increasing their plant-based foods intake. Governments and industry are working together to increase the shift from animal-based to plant-protein diets.
