Future of Proteins Ideation Workshop

Eisenbahnstraße 42/43 / Berlin

Food Innovation is a Global Mission!
Join us on our journey and get to know four disruptive food innovation from different parts of the world.

Innovation has to add value but does not necessarily have to be something brand new. It requires the understanding of an idea, maybe rethinking it, putting it in a different context and making new connections. At the end of the day, it only matters if the implementation of the idea was successful, value-adding and sustainable.

Throughout four Saturdays you will have the chance to learn about our food system in small multidisciplinary groups analyzing case studies from the https://foodshapers.org book series.
Discuss the food system problems these examples found a solution for, how these solutions could be adopted and implemented in our local context, and what are the existing actions in our immediate surrounding.

Global meat consumption and production have risen fast over the last decades and it is projected to more than double in the next 30 years harming the environment, human health, and animals.

Sustainable intensification, which aims to increase production without negative trade-off for the environment and biodiversity applying more efficient farming practices especially in developing countries, together with redistribution and shifts in dietary patterns will significantly contribute to such GHG reduction.
Protein source diversification is one of the key ideas that have the potential to challenge the future of food systems.

Consumers’ awareness of the general impact of meat consumption is considerably low and they need to be educated about new ways to consume proteins. There are several barriers to behavioral change in food choices including those related to cultural motivation, different habits, taste preferences, and convenience.

The global market for alternative proteins is expected to increase as new sources are in the early stages of a trend that is taking off. Identifying the signals and driving actors that will contribute to the rethinking of the protein system will be a future challenge.
