Protein Futures 2024 – Scaling Up for Success
May 28 - May 29
The global population will reach 9.7 billion by 2050, fuelling the demand for protein. The world will need to produce more protein, sustainably, from a variety of sources. The increasing global demand for high-quality protein opens up new growth opportunities for Australia’s agrifood industry.
As a major producer and exporter of protein, Australian industry is well-placed to enhance existing animal and plant protein production alongside developing novel protein production systems and products that meet the requirements and preferences of changing consumers.
In the global race to fulfil protein demand, Australia holds a competitive advantage across plant, animal and novel protein technologies as long as we continue to invest urgently in the future.
This symposium provides an open forum for leading protein and food innovators to discuss challenges and opportunities. Together, we’ll consider the opportunities and challenges in scaling up protein production for the future, including looking at current and cutting-edge food science and technology.
In partnership with industry stakeholders and thought leaders, we’re discussing how the plant, animal and novel protein industries complement each other. Together, we all contribute to a more holistic protein industry, growing through sustainable and efficient technology development in a tightening capital market.
