Dr. Volker Heinz, Managing Director, DIL (Germany) says that the landscape of the protein industry has changed rapidly over the past ten years. Progress in process development and the availability of new raw materials have become drivers of sustainable innovations in food production.
He believes that future developments are determined by how food producers succeed in areas such as product development. The degree to which we manage innovation – from the initial idea through to market penetration – is crucial to both economic success and sustainability in food production.
Today’s innovations in the protein industry will determine what and how we eat in 30 years.
