On January 20th, ProVeg Incubator will present Future Food Series: Algae, the sixth event in the Future Food Series. Along with Zintinus, the event will explore the wonderful subject of algae and its diverse applications across the food industry. The event features guests including Algama Foods, Oceanfruit, Betterfish, Genesea, Sophie’s Bionutrients, and EABA.
The power of algae in food tech
It is estimated that there are over a million species of algae worldwide. Algae have all of the essential nutrients required for human health, are an important source of protein, and are among the most sustainable resources on our planet. The global market size for algae products reached an estimated value of $4.7 billion in 2021 and this is projected to grow steeply in the coming years. Seaweed can become a game-changer in tackling climate change and environmental challenges, since it binds CO2 and needs no water, land or energy to grow.
What to expect
Our guests are pioneering startup founders and experts in all things algae. What applications of algae are the most promising? Which products will we see on the markets and when? How does the scale-up of algae products work and what are the regulatory hurdles? With our guests, we will discuss the tech, the challenges, and the impact of algae on the way towards a transformed global food industry.
