Re-thinking the Food Industry

The New Food Conference Berlin

Plant-based meets cellular agriculture:
two complementary approaches towards a more resilient food system

We are on the cusp of one of the fastest and most consequential transformations of the food system since humans first started domesticating plants and animals. Sales of plant-based products are skyrocketing, while cellular agriculture and precision fermentation hold the potential to change the way we grow our food forever.

Why alternative proteins are transforming our food system

As consumer demand for sustainable and healthy food continues to grow, alternative proteins are likely to become an increasingly important part of our food system. They offer a way to meet the demand for protein without compromising the environment, animal welfare, or public health. So plant-based alternatives continue to penetrate global markets at lightning speed, and novel food sources are increasingly sought out by consumers, the food industry, and politicians alike, in order to reduce the negative impacts of animal agriculture.

Learn, exchange, connect

The New Food Conference Berlin invites international food professionals, scientists, and policy makers to gain an understanding of how far these developments have progressed, and where they will take us in the future. In addition to sharing valuable expertise, the event places a strong emphasis on encouraging networking and enabling personal interactions between food-industry stakeholders.

Join us in the beautiful Spreespeicher in the heart of Berlin, where the charme of a historic granary meets modern interior design.
