We are speaking at Fermented-Enabled Alternative Protein Innovations

Posted 14 January, 2021

Meat has been the main source of protein in developed markets for years, and there has been an increased appetite for traditional protein in developing markets in recent years. However, changing consumer behavior and interest in alternative-protein sources—due in part to health and environmental concerns as well as animal welfare—have made way for growth in the alternative-proteins market.

Food industry players that want to capture the opportunity must understand the evolving market dynamics and where to place their bets. The key to getting your fermentation-enabled alternative proteins to market in the EU & other markets is to have a solid regulatory strategy in place. It is essential to conduct the right studies in the correct way to build up evidence to convince the regulatory authorities that your product is safe. However, this is easier said than done as the regulatory framework can be tricky to navigate.

We invite you to join us at the Fermented-Enabled Alternative Protein Innovations Summit on 26-28 January and explore key challenges and opportunities in the successful commercialization of fermentation-enabled alternative proteins for human consumption.

Do not miss the presentation of our Scientific Director Dr Hannah Lester on “Regulatory considerations for fermentation-derived proteins used for food & feed in the EU“.

 In this talk we will:

  • Provide a clear & concise overview of regulatory framework in EU
  • Explain what is classed as a novel food or feed?
  • Outline specific regulatory considerations for protein derived by fermentation such as strain identification & safety, genetic modifications, etc.
  • Provide advice on what you need to do for a successful registration

Have questions about the regulatory status of your product? Feel free to Schedule a meeting with Pen & Tec experts Dr Hannah Lester and John Harrison to find out the regulatory requirements and mots optimal strategy to market it.
