About the Session

This presentation will look into why the dynamic world of alternative proteins faces public skepticism. We'll explore historical parallels to understand how disruptive industries faced similar challenges – misinformation, fear-mongering, and resistance from entrenched interests. But we'll also delve into the resilience strategies employed by past pioneers, offering valuable insights for the alternative protein sector. One key hurdle is the narrative surrounding 'synthetic food'. It will dissect this umbrella term, uncovering its origins and potential impact on public perception. We'll then analyze the interconnected web of narratives influencing consumers, from conspiracy theories to concerns about traditional farming. To navigate these complexities, we'll equip you with an 'Industry Survival Guide' packed with 'do's and don'ts'. Ultimately, the success of this sector hinges on collective responsibility. By working together, the industry can empower consumers to make informed choices while continuing to push the boundaries of innovation through precision fermentation, cellular agriculture, and beyond.
