It is not a question of if – but how a growing global population can afford and access meat and protein.
Every year, the world eats more meat than ever before. There is an increasing demand for animal protein and a rising concern about the adverse environmental effects of the conventional meat industry.
Consumers are increasingly demanding ethical and sustainable food, and innovative food technologies are driving a food revolution, transforming food production as we know it.
Cultured, slaughter-free meat offers enormous global potential to meet supply chain and food equity challenges while reducing global emissions, land and water usage.
But would you eat ‘meat from a lab’? How is it made? Is it safe? Would you choose this affordable alternative?
Join innovator, entrepreneur and inventor Professor Yaakov "Koby" Nahmias, Director of the Alexander Grass Center for Bioengineering at Hebrew University; Founder & President, Future Meat Technologies; Founder & CSO, Tissue Dynamics whose cultured meat solutions are revolutionising what we eat.
Joining Koby will be Professor Asher Cohen, President, Hebrew University and Rob Schneider, Chief Executive Officer, Australian Friends of the Hebrew University, who will be available to talk with you about opportunities with the Hebrew University.
We hope you can join the last AICC Young Business Forum (YBF) event for the year – our forum for emerging leaders to exchange ideas and build relationships across our AICC network. AICC senior leaders are encouraged to nominate participants.
Numbers are limited – so please Book early!
