The food system is currently grappling with monumental challenges that require urgent intervention. In India, malnutrition and farmers’ incomes are vital issues along with the risk of greenhouse gas emissions and water shortages from rising industrial animal agriculture. If we want to feed a billion plus Indians in a sustainable, healthy and just manner, it is imperative that we focus on innovative solutions, like transforming our food system by fostering innovation in plant-based and cultivated meat, eggs and dairy.
The Future of Protein Summit aims to re-imagine protein and bring together the key stakeholders in business, innovation, scientific research and policy to transform how we make our food. This event is hosted jointly by the Good Food Institute India and Humane Society International/ India, in association with the Ministry of Food Processing Industries. The event partners include Omnivore, Ashika Group, Tasting India, and the Embassy of Israel and YourStory (which is a digital media partner).
The event will bring together entrepreneurs, scientists, policy makers, investors, leading plant-based and cultivated meat companies, and other experts to discuss how they can collaborate on catalyzing the Indian alternative protein sector.
