The Future of Food and Feed

06jun9:00 am12:00 pmThe Future of Food and Feed

Event Details


The rise in population, alongside the governmental Net Zero targets, will place considerable demands on existing food systems, requiring significant innovation in agriculture, manufacturing and waste management. Furthermore, producers, manufacturers and retailers face increased demands from consumers around the sustainability and environmental performance of the food on their plate.

The IBioIC conference fringe event will explore innovative responses to these challenges. The first part of the session will focus on alternative approaches to protein production. Following this will be an exploration of an innovative approach to the utilisation of waste and co-products for food and feed manufacture. Key stakeholders will deliver presentations on their contribution to a recent Zero Waste Scotland funded project to develop a novel cascade approach to whisky co-product valorisation.

Who is this event for?

Anyone interested in exploring the role that biotechnology has in future food systems.
