17/08/2017: Industry leaders gather to shape future protein strategies: Bridge2Food

Global food industry leaders will gather in France at Bridge2Food 10th Protein Summit 2017 to shape and create new protein strategies for the future, the event runs from 26th – 28th September, 2017

This is the largest global protein platform which brings together industry and public policy leaders from the whole value chain to discuss, co-operate, build and shape future protein strategies.

400+ experts from Food, Feed and Pet food; Protein ingredients, Technology & Research industries will join a unique 5-in-1 Summit featuring:

i) Protein 2030 Summit – Shaping a Protein Agenda for Europe
ii) Plant Based Foods Summit – Building a European Based Foods Network
iii) High Protein Food Summit – Future Growth of High Protein
iv) Protein Ingredients Summit – New Innovations for Future Protein Supply
v) Protein Processing Summit – Scaling up New Protein Technologies

Concern over future food and nutritional security related to protein supply & demand is rapidly rising on the global and European agenda of governments, industries, and agricultural value chains in view of stabilizing crop yields and a rapidly increasing population.

How can we meet the future protein needs of nine billion people in a sustainable, healthy & environmentally friendly way?

How can the food industry tap into growing consumer appetites new foods, tastes & plant-based foods?

What is the actual potential for alternative proteins to move into the mainstream & gain scale to make a larger commercial impact?

All this and more will be explored during the five Summits:

The Protein Challenge 2040 
Simon Billing, Principal Sustainability Advisor for Forum of The Future will present the benefits of cross value chain co-operation as part of the Protein 2030 Summit. Protein is an essential part of human and animal diets, but the ways we produce and consume it are unsustainable.

The Protein Challenge 2040 is the first global coalition with key players from the animal, plant and novel protein industries, exploring how we can feed nine billion people enough protein in a way that is affordable, healthy and good for the planet.

By 2020, the Protein Challenge aims to have:
• Raised the profile of protein as an integral and important part of a sustainable food system;
• Changed the conversation around protein: from ‘good’ and ‘bad’ sources towards a better balance of sustainable protein;
• Catalysed action, influenced relevant policy and increased investment in sustainable solutions.

The Protein Challenge is currently focussed on three innovation areas for immediate action: scaling up sustainable animal feed innovation to meet demand for animal protein; increasing the proportion of plant-based protein consumption with consumers; closing the protein nutrient loop.

I) The Protein 2030 Summit 
Will be shaping a Future Protein Agenda for Europe. Is there is a need for a Protein Agenda in Europe? If so, what are the key elements and how can industry and government across the national borders work together?

Some key themes will be:
• Consumer Global Supply & Demand of Proteins & Protein Foods – Agritel, France
• European Soy: Bridging Sustainable Protein Demand with Supply - Donau Soja, Austria
• French Protein Ingredient Strategy – Protein France
• The Plant-Protein Growing & Greening Strategy in Germany, Federal Office for Agriculture & Food

II) Plant-Based Foods Summit 

Growing more plant protein in Europe is very important from a sustainability, climate and self-sufficiency point of view. The demand for plant protein ingredients is increasing and there are many economic opportunities. Governments and industry are working together to increase the shift from animal-based to plant-protein diets.

Some key themes will be:
• The European Market for Meat-Free and Dairy-Free Foods – Tivall Europe at Nestle
• The Global Context: Building the Meat-Free Category – Quorn Foods (UK)
• The US plant-based investment opportunity
• Plant-Based Foods as a category: Is there a future?

III) High Protein Foods Summit 
The ambition is to create new consumer insights, understanding the benefits and communicating them to the consumers and establish some key points where industry can work together to grow the overall market.

IV) Protein Ingredients Summit 

On New ingredients, raw materials and combinations targeting the food and petfood industry, as well as the ingredient and processing industries and create a platform for discussion on the role of new protein ingredients for a better and more sustainable food, pet food and feed world. New sources offer new opportunities, what are challenges and where can the value chain work more closely together? Led by Dr Stacy Pyett, Business Development Manager at Nizo and Dr. Anne Wagner, R&D Director, Tereos (France) will feature:

• Genesis of plant-protein specialities, from soy to new sources – EUVEPRO (Belgium)
• Strategies to tackle the protein challenge – ADM (France)
• The Future of Single Cell Proteins – Calysta, USA
• Mycoproteins: A new future? 3fbio
• Krill bio-mass innovations & challenges
• Round Table on Alfalfa – ARD (France)
• EU Horizon 2020 and research projects

Speakers from: ADM Chamtor, Euvepro, A-R-D, 3fBio, Valio, Calysta, Rembrandt Foods, Aker Biomarine, NIZO, VTT, Wageningen University

V) Protein Processing Summit 
On New technologies and processing methods. The ambition is to open up new opportunities for novel technologies, which can bridge a major gap in science and create a better understanding on the future challenges from a sustainability, zero-waste and water perspective as well as creating a better taste and texture. Speakers from: ProAsh, Wageningen University, Improve, Keygene, and many others
