The world's population is estimated to reach 9.1 billion in 2050. The major countries of China, Russia and India will show a steady increase in the standard of living and hence their demand for animal and dairy proteins will increase.
Global food transition is imminent, and the security of supply of food and food protein is set to become a significant global issue.
The Protein Summit 2010, to be held in Amsterdam, 25-26 November, will cover the following value chain challenges and opportunities:
• Global insights into the full value chain (consumers, retailers, ingredients companies, manufacturers and research institutions) in segments such as dairy, meat, fish, meat alternatives and feed.
• Business opportunities: Learn how to create sustainable opportunities through first-hand accounts and business cases from over 26+ CEOs, directors and researchers.
• Sustainability challenges: Gain understanding of new, sustainable protein sources and processes.
• Research and innovation developments: Meet new business partners at the Protein Innovation Plaza.
