As the world’s demand for plant oils and protein continues to increase and outstrip production at an unprecedented pace, yield alone will no longer be sufficient to sustainably meet that demand, innovation to increase protein levels in plants and develop alt proteins is required.

FeedNavigator is running a free to access webinar – Feed Protein Innovation - that will explore developments in the US in that respect.

The online event will also hear about the outcome of a UK/EU project that explored the taking of excess waste nutrients produced from anaerobic digestion of food and farm waste to cultivate algal biomass rich in protein for animal feed, and we will get the low down on supply and demand fundamentals for both conventional and novel feed proteins such as those derived from insects.

Don’t miss out on this on trend discussion. Register now for this live event​, which takes place on February 28 at 4.30pm CET (Paris).

Structural shift in US soy industry 

We have assembled a great group of experts for this webinar, including Gordon Denny, a leading soy industry consultant. He will debrief us on the structural shift that is taking place in the US soy industry, with the sector slowing moving away from a volume over value model to one focused on both higher yields and beans with higher protein content. That transition is being spurred on by forecast expansion in US crushing capacity.

Dr Alla Silkina will talk us through the findings of an EU wide project. She is a renowned algal biotechnologist, based at Swansea University in the UK. The initiative she will be referencing is the Interreg NWE funded project, ALG-AD, involving scientists and engineers across four countries, in which new technology was developed to take excess waste nutrients produced from anaerobic digestion of food and farm waste to cultivate algae derived protein rich biomass for feed.

Also contributing to the discussion is Sara Girardello. She heads up the starch, grains, and sweeteners research team of LMC International, part of GlobalData. She has acted as project leader across a broad range of consultancy projects on agricultural raw materials, such as cereals and oilseeds, food ingredients and proteins and will outline which markets, within the livestock and aquaculture sectors, will drive demand for vegetable proteins, whether there will be supply constraints for some proteins, the fundamentals around further investment in the sector, and the opportunities and challenges that insect proteins are facing.

A live Q&A session with the audience will follow the speakers’ presentation.
