Registered delegates will have the unique opportunity to book 20-minute-long pre-scheduled private 1-2-1 meetings during the conference.

Why Attend

After the success of our launch event last year, the Sustainable Protein Production Summit is back!

Bringing together leaders in innovation across protein production from start-ups to government organisations across the UK and Globally for 3 days of unmissable learning and industry collaboration.

Despite the rise of plant-based diets the FAO has predicted a 12% increase by 2029 in the demand for animal protein, with the market expected to reach $1157.55 billion in 2025.

It is essential to improve sustainability within our current protein production system to meet the consumer’s growing demand for both protein and sustainability. 

The Sustainable Protein Production summit will be addressing the detrimental sustainability challenges that occur in the primary production phase and, with our additional Animal Health Innovation day, make the connections needed to achieve your company’s sustainability goals.
