Cellular Agriculture & Fermentation - the Livestock Farms of the Future?
Time & Location
About the Event
“Fifty years hence, we shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium.” Winston Churchill, 1931. It may have taken us more than fifty years, but we are getting closer to Churchill’s dream of producing food with meat without slaughtering a live animal.
Join us for the final webinar of our summer Food Tech series in partnership with Weild & Co and the Good Food Institute to learn about the future of alternative proteins. Two alternative proteins will be discussed: Cell-Ag, which is the reproduction of animal cells and creation of biomass without animal slaughter and Fermentation which uses bacteria, algae or yeast to produce organic molecules which are used to replicate the animal-derived products such as milk, egg whites, and more. In this webinar, experts will discuss everything you need to know about cellular agriculture and fermentation including: - What is cellular agriculture for meat, dairy, seafood and its positive impact on the supply chain, - What is Fermentation and how is it being used for protein production, - Industry best practices to impact the mass consumer market, and - Industry growth opportunities and key players.
