21/12/20 – Event / Reformulate / Fermentation / Fermented / Protein / Digital / Summit
Join leading F&B players in January to explore fermentation – the next big thing in alternative protein
Join Clara Foods, The Good Food Institute, Perfect Day, Quorn and many more at the REFORMULATE: Fermentation-Enabled Alternative Protein Innovation Digital Summit – held online from 28–28 January 2021.
Next-generation fermentation technologies are gaining momentum in the food industry, and interest in the space from investors is growing, as demonstrated by the recent US$28m raised by a fungi-based protein brand.
With fermentation touted as the next pillar in the alternative protein movement, it is now more important than ever to come together as a community to discuss where the industry is heading to, alongside possible challenges on the way.
The REFORMULATE: Fermentation-Enabled Alternative Protein Innovation Digital Summit (26–28 January 2021) is your one opportunity to be brought up to speed with novel technological advances powering the new wave of alternative protein products and leveraging fermentation biotechnology to increase the scalability, flavour, sustainability and production efficiency of next-generation alternative protein sources.
Where biotech and food innovators converge
Bringing together key decision-makers from biotech and food tech, multinational CPG companies, independent food brands and ingredient suppliers, this is a conversation not to miss.

Pre-conference interactive workshops
Currently, almost all the 10 top-selling plant-based meat brands are focusing on products that aim to match animal-based meat in taste, texture, and appearance. And yet, achieving biomimicry at the commercial scale required remains a key challenge in the Alternative Protein industry.
That’s why the event organisers have created a series of Pre-Conference Deep Dive Workshops to address some of the key challenges in the industry:
• Food-Focused Climate Solutions Explore the connections between food, agriculture, and energy-based climate solutions. Led by Isaac Emery, Principal Consultant & Founder of Informed Sustainability Consulting
• Commercialisation and Scaling of Fermentation-Enabled Proteins Discuss the scaling and commercialisation challenges surrounding fermentation, to have any chance of delivering that Fermentation-Enabled Alternative Protein to your table any time soon. Led by:
• Mark Warner, Founder, Warner Advisors
• Ilan Samish, CEO, Amai Proteins
• Blake Byrne, Business Innovation Specialist, The Good Food Institute
Attend the REFORMULATE: Fermentation-Enabled Alternative Protein Innovation Digital Summit (26-28 January) to meet the community in order to navigate and overcome formulation and manufacturing challenges, alongside determining how to effectively integrate fermentation-enabled alternative proteins into your product offerings: www.fermentation-enabled-proteins.com
