Early Bird tickets now available for AltProteins 24 Conference  

Early bird tickets are now available for Australia and New Zealand’s premier conference on alternative proteins.

Food Frontier’s AltProteins 24 event is on Thursday, 10 October 2024 in Melbourne and is essential for anyone involved or intrigued by the plant-based foods, cultivated meat, or precision fermentation industries. This includes those in primary production, investment, research and development, academia, government, manufacturing, foodservice, and retail.

AltProteins 24 welcomes back the Victorian Government as lead sponsor through support from Agriculture Victoria, Global Victoria and Invest Victoria.

Minister for Agriculture Ros Spence said the event helps support innovation, sustainability and growth from across the sector. She said, “We are proud to sponsor the AltProteins conference for a third year, encouraging innovation, sustainability and growth in the agriculture industry.

“We are investing in pulse research as part of the Government’s Agriculture Strategy, which is working towards enhancing the commercialisation of research and innovation, ensuring our agriculture sector is stronger and sustainable.”

With global food systems estimated to account for one quarter to one third of all greenhouse gas emissions this year’s event will spotlight sustainability.

Food Frontier CEO, Dr Simon Eassom, said without a doubt sustainability is top of mind for many food businesses and despite it being an inherent benefit of alternative protein products, it’s still an issue that manufacturers, ingredient suppliers and retailers need to get their head around. He said, “We also need governments to implement policy and funding, we need businesses to invest and collaborate, we need academia and research to prioritise R&D, and ultimately, we need consumers to adopt more sustainable foods.

“AltProteins 24 will include a debate on the most efficient strategies for advancing the food-as-a-climate-change-issue agenda and promoting alternative proteins as a viable solution. We look forward to this discussion which will involve experts from many different disciplines.”

AltProteins 24 will feature workshops on accessing global markets, cellular agriculture bridging evidence gaps with accountability, and the pressing challenges and solutions facing cultivated meat.

Last year, the conference drew in a crowd of more than 400 delegates.

Food is always one of the highlights of the event and this year will be no different. Delegates can look forward to tasting the versatility of a wide range of plant-based meat dishes prepared by expert chefs.

In addition to the Victorian Government we are pleased to announce Merck, Eden Brew, Tetra Pak, Rockwell Automation, v2food and Unigrain as sponsors of AltProteins 24.
