Food, Feed & Nutrition

Sustainability is beginning to transform the food industry with environmental, economic and social factors being considered, evaluated and implemented throughout the supply chain like never before. When it comes to innovation, a growing number of stakeholders is working on different technologies to provide a more sustainable way of producing food and feed for humans and animals. Be it insects, algaes or plants as a new resource for food or feed, be it synthetic biology or other cell-based strategies – the different routes require adapted regulatory and policy frameworks and market access strategies. EFIB provides a platform to discuss those business challenges and opportunities.
