Morrison & Foerster is proud to sponsor the Future Food-Tech Alternative Proteins Summit, June 21-22, 2022 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. The summit connects global food leaders to map out the future of protein and explore new approaches to scaling novel technologies. Now in its second year, the program will feature debates, panels, and presentations as well as opportunities to taste the future of food at the iconic Taste Lab and cook-off session.
On Wednesday, June 22 from 1:45 pm to 2:30 pm EDT, MoFo’s Michael Ward, co-chair of the Food & Agriculture industry group, will moderate “Plant Sourcing: A Decision That Impacts Carbon, Nutrition and Biodiversity,” alongside panelists Maxime Saffon, Plant-Based Advisor at Nestle and Chris Theal, President and CEO at Phyto Organix. Discussion topics include:
- How important are farming practices to the overall sustainability rating of a crop? How does this compare to other areas of the supply chain, like transportation?
- What benefits does sourcing locally offer over importing from abroad? What myths exist around local production?
- Are we using the right varieties of pea or soy today? Could other varieties deliver on high protein content or better taste and what will it take to implement these into mainstream agriculture?
Register now to meet and network with founders, investors, and food brands at the forefront of the future of alternative proteins.
