GFI LINC (Learn, Inspire, Network, Collaborate) is an industry initiative that leverages the Good Food Institute’s unique position in the alternative protein ecosystem to bring together companies across the global value chain to gain key insights into the alternative protein market and foster new collaborations and partnerships. GFI hosts bi-monthly virtual roundtables dedicated to a specific topic that our research indicates is critical to addressing industry bottlenecks and accelerating the growth of the alternative protein sector. This community is founded upon the belief that by convening a diverse range of stakeholders, we can drive industry-wide change and grow the entire sector in a way that benefits all.
In order to join the community, you must work for one of the following types of companies:
- A large food manufacturer/B2B supplier (e.g. ingredients, equipment), retailer, foodservice company, or distributor
- Must have a clear intent of dedicating at least a part of the business to alternative proteins.
- An alternative protein startup/company
- Must be mature in terms of scale (beyond conceptual/early R&D stage) and funding (minimum series A).
Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
