What’s ProteinTECH 2018?
Climate change, carbon emissions and animal welfare have all become highly conscious issues for the current generations, affecting every industry across the globe – including food. In recent years, a new “clean-food” industry has developed to combat these issues, and is growing exponentially into a lucrative business opportunity for farmers and developers alike. New items on the menu include meat made from plant-protein, chicken and beef grown from self-producing cells, and chicken made from pea protein.
ProteinTECH 2018 will cover what this means for the New Zealand primary industries and what opportunities we have to get on board with these new technologies. New Zealand already has a high export value market, and now there is the opportunity to be at the forefront of innovation and development in this sector. This one-day conference is aimed at people in the food production and farming industries, as well as those who have an interest or expertise in emerging food technologies.
Who Will Attend?

- Agribusiness consultants
- Food science researchers
- Industry analysts
