Winning Consumer Foods

The demand for plant-based foods is increasing fast. There are many opportunities for retailers, food service operators, and brands to serve consumers better and more inspiring foods. Consumers are also seeking more healthy and sustainable diets.

During the summit we will be addressing the following questions:

  • What is driving consumers?
  • How relevant is the climate when shopping for food?
  • What are the nutritional characteristics? Is this a relevant trend?
  • What does Generation X think about plant-based or vegan?
  • How can retailers and food service channels capitalize on the trend of plant-based?
  • Where are we now and what does the future look like?
  • What are the do’s and don’ts to build the category with brands?
  • Innovation is booming. Who will lead the market in 2 years’ time?
  • What is the actual potential for plant protein ingredients to move into the mainstream & gain scale to make a larger commercial impact?
  • Which processing technologies are needed to improve the texture, taste and nutrition of plant protein ingredients?
  • Is there a need for a global protein research agenda? When so, what are the key elements and how can industry and government across the national borders work together.
  • How do investors perceive the plant-based opportunity and brands active in this space?

This unique Summit will enable brands to validate their strategies and develop new opportunities with key partners, retailers, food service channels, food brands, food ingredients companies, processing technology companies, and research leaders.

The Key Business Questions are:

– What is the opportunity for new plant-based foods from a consumer, retailing, nutrition and food processing point of view?

– Which are future directions for new plant-protein ingredients from a user, supply, food, processing, sustainability, and value chain perspective?
