Preliminary agenda published for The Future of Protein Production Summit 2023
The organizer of The Future of Protein Production Summit has announced that the preliminary agenda for the 2023 conference is now live and available to view online - and it doesn't disappoint! Among the highlights are Upside Foods' Eric Schulze, who was instrumental in securing the FDA's approval for the company's chicken product last week, albeit he is just is one of more than 75 speakers who will deliver presentations and/or take part in panel discussions at the world's leading online event focusing on the technologies and strategies to scale and commercialize the alternative proteins sector. This takes on even more importance given the apparent 'greenlight' of cultured meat in the USA.
What's more, if you register today at the Super Early Bird rate, you can save US$200 on the delegate's pass, meaning a three-day pass is priced at only US$295. "Being virtual, this means that not only can we put on an industry-leading Summit in the most sustainable way possible, with almost zero detriment to the environment, we also have a much larger pool of expert speakers to choose from and we do not limit our program only by companies' ability and availability to attend face-to-face," enthused Sebastian Sbuttoni, Conference Director. "The interest in this year's Summit has been quite overwhelming. We could have filled the agenda three times over. There are significant technical challenges manufacturers must overcome if alternatives to conventional meat products are going to deliver on their promise. Here we will be focusing on those areas with solutions, in achieving scale, price parity, taste, texture and nutrition, sustainability in production, and more."
More than 240 applications to speak were received – five times as many than the 2022 Summit – which took place in March 2022.
