Event description

The future of food will not look like the past. We will have to shift paradigms and develop and scale new technologies—like plant-based, fermentation-based, and cultivated meat—to feed a growing population and establish a more sustainable, healthier, and more secure food supply chain.

GFI cultivated meat lead scientist Elliot Swartz will speak on the panel, “Alternative proteins—are we there yet?,” at the 19th annual Guelph Food Safety Seminars Symposium.
