Neither Fish nor Fowl: The Growth of Alternatives to Animal-Derived Food

March 11, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Event Description

In recent years the number of people pursuing flexitarian, vegetarian, and vegan lifestyles has risen. In response, several start-up and established companies are developing and commercializing nonanimal foods to provide alternatives to animal-based meat. The technology follows one of two paths—either formulating plant-based products or using cell cultures to “grow” meat.

This program will bring together representatives from companies active in the field, discussing this sector’s growth and the challenges to consumer adoption of alternative meats. Technical challenges aside, these companies must also address regulatory, economic, and consumer-perception hurdles.
