You are here

In response to the growing need for edible proteins in the world, the IUFoST Scientific Council is organising a roundtable to discuss pathways forward to the future. The sustainable alternative protein sources continue to grow in response to the  increasing world population that is expected to exceed 9 billion by the year 2050. In this connection, proteins from plants, insects, and microbial sources as well as by-products in a circular economy have already manifested in the novel food revolution. The roundtable brings together internationally renowned experts to discuss the state-of-the-art status of the current situation with an insight into the future. Speakers include Dr. Julian McClements, University of Massachusetts, Janitha Wanasundara, Agriculture and Agri Food Canada, and Jaykant Yadav, from Central University of Rajasthan, India. The Roundtable is set for Thursday, September 22nd from 08.00 to 10.00 ET.
