The global population will reach 9.7 billion by 2050, fuelling the demand for protein.
As a major producer and exporter of protein, Australia can capitalise on this demand by capturing high value, high margin export market opportunities, in the process building manufacturing capability and creating new jobs. Australia’s food industry is well placed to develop novel, differentiated protein products that meet the requirements and changing dietary patterns of the modern health- and welfare-conscious consumer.
CSIRO has developed the Future Protein Mission to leverage increasing global demand for high quality protein and create new Australian protein products and ingredients that earn an additional $10 billion in revenue by 2030.
Join Group Leader of the New Markets Group at CSIRO, and leader of the Plant Protein work package in the Future Protein Mission, Dr Crispin Howitt as he walks industry through the Mission, the opportunity the Mission is seeking to address, how the mission is structured and a high level outline of the three key focus areas.
Following Dr Howitt’s presentation, we will be joined by Dr David Cox, Principal Research Scientist at CSIRO. Dr Cox will explore the consumer appetite for plant based proteins, based on high level findings from the Future Protein Mission, as well as shining a spotlight on the NTU-CSIRO (Singapore-Australia) alternative protein study, focussing on plant protein.
