Re-shaping the future of food: innovation meets investment

Virtual New Food Invest, Global

Plant-based investing: helping to build the food solutions of the future.  

The New Food Invest is a 3-in-1 conference format, catering for three different time zones on a single day: it provides convenient access for the Asian/Australian market followed by the European/Middle Eastern region and closes with a focus on the North & South American continent. Each NFI ticket grants access to all sessions and leverages the value of the event, providing you with 12 hours of attractive programming.

ProVeg and Beyond Animal are proud to announce their inaugural collaboration in the form of the first Virtual New Food Invest.

The COVID-19 crisis presents a unique opportunity to accelerate ongoing food-systems change by investing in plant-based solutions. The plant-based food market will be worth $74.2 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2020, according to industry forecasts by the Meticulous Research institution. 

According to the FAIRR (Farm Animal Investment Risk & Return) initiative, key drivers are leading markets away from animal farming and toward better alternatives – with investors looking for investment opportunities that are both sustainable and lucrative. Such opportunities include: 

  • Growing demand for plant-based foods
  • Accelerated innovations in food technology
  • Increasing awareness of environmental, social, and governance impacts (such as subsidies) linked to intensive animal farming
  • Advocacy and regulation to moderate growth in the animal-protein sector

New Food Invest aims to leverage these promising developments currently taking place in the alternative-protein space. It will be the world’s first virtual conference focusing exclusively on bringing together international plant-based and cultured food startups, investors, and key stakeholders in the food industry. This impactful combination will promote and accelerate future solutions.

Due to COVID-19, we are committed to a 100% safe, crisis-proof, and impactful event, while enabling you to save on travel expenses, reduce your CO2 emissions, and focus on making the investment connections you have been looking for.

Meet key stakeholders and connect with investors and startups from the alternative-protein space focusing on both plant-based and cell-cultured alternatives, including meat, seafood, egg, and dairy. Investors attending will include institutional investors, and qualified venture capitalists, as well as angel investors, and qualified individual investors. 

As the sister brand to the New Food Conference, Europe’s leading summit on alternative protein, we expect more than 400 international participants at New Food Invest. Join us and benefit from connecting with investors and lucrative startups – or simply learn more about the latest developments in the finance and alternative-protein sectors. We will also be offering an exclusive online mixer that will provide customized digital networking opportunities.

The current COVID-19 has impacted all of us. On the other hand, it also represents the urgent need and opportunity to change the ongoing food-systems. The ‘ProVeg Food & Pandemics Report’ outlines how food choices provide an area to create a recipe for pandemics. By making the transition and shift towards plant-based and cultured foods, we mitigate not only the risk for pandemics but also create a higher demand for plant-based foods. Investors are looking for innovative investment opportunities that are lucrative and reflect a high consumer demand and potential. New Food Invest aims to leverage these promising developments currently taking place in the alternative-protein space.
