    Building Global Protein Eco-Systems – Shifting Innovation Gears and Raising the Bar?!
    The 12th Plant Protein Ingredients Summit 2019 will focus on:
    > New Plant Protein Ingredients
    > Novel Plant Protein Processing Technologies
    > New Plant Protein Applications

    Shifting Gears will be more and more important to meet concerns over future food and nutritional security related to protein supply & demand is rapidly rising on the global and European agenda of governments, industries, and agricultural value chains in view of stabilizing crop yields and a fastly growing population.

    Growing more plant protein in Canada and North America is very important from a sustainability, climate and self-sufficiency point of view. The demand for plant protein ingredients is increasing and there are many economic opportunities. Consumers are also seeking more healthy and sustainable diets and they are increasing their plant-based foods intake. And how can we meet the protein needs of 9 billion people in a sustainable, healthy & environmentally friendly way? How can the food industry tap into growing consumer appetites new foods, tastes & plant-based foods? What is the actual potential for plant protein ingredients to move into the mainstream & gain scale to make a larger commercial impact?

    Which processing technologies are needed to improve the texture, taste and nutrition of plant protein ingredients? Is there a need for a global protein research agenda? When so, what are the key elements and how can industry and government across the national borders work together.

    Track I: New Plant Protein Ingredients
    This Track will create a platform for cooperation between different parts of the value chain. Bringing new ingredients to the market place will require a food systems approach and also new eco-systems. These platforms are also needed to improve the quality of existing plant protein ingredients. New applications need to be found for fibres and starches to create a sustainable business model for plant protein ingredient suppliers. It is not just about food, but also about creating new markets in pet food, feed, and aquaculture. How and where can the value chain work more closely together?

    Track II: New Plant Protein Processing Technology
    The purpose of this Track is to open up new opportunities for novel technologies and processes, which can bridge the gap the challenges from a sustainability, zero-waste and water perspective as well as creating a better taste and texture and the currently available technologies? Which experts are needed and how should we work together to advance quickly?

    Track III: New Plant Protein Applications
    This Track will focus on the challenges of developing new plant-based foods applications and improving existing categories like dairy-free, beverages, meat-free and snacks. How to bridge the major gap between a better, texture and nutrition and the science needed? Who is needed at the design table and which disruptive thinking is required to accelerate?

    This Summit has been created, together with our partners, in view of the fantastic global and innovative position of Canada in the field of pulse and protein ingredients. The recently launched super cluster Protein Industries Canada is another reason for the international food, pet food, and feed industries and suppliers to join the Summits.

    This unique Summit will enable brands to validate their strategies and develop new opportunities with key partners, food brands, and food ingredients companies.

    Expo 2022 Floriade Almere will be the 7th International Horticultural Expo in the Netherlands. For six months, the attention to the theme ‘Growing Green Cities’ will be focused on the cities of the future. Visitors will have a unique and meaningful experience: during the expo they will be invited to ‘explore, touch and change’.

    This expo will be the start of a new city district close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands called Almere. Almost everything that will be built for the exhibition will become a permanent part of the legacy of Almere. The structures will remain and become part of the community for future activities.

    The Earth has seven billion inhabitants and growing, and more than fifty percent live in cities. By 2050, this percentage will have increased to nearly seventy percent. With continued and relentless urbanisation, we have no option but to look for new ways to keep our cities safe, healthy and attractive and to find a better balance between ‘grey’ and ‘green’ infrastructure. We invite the world to join us and to contribute to our theme: Growing Green Cities.

    Within this context, four sub-themes are explored:

    Green: Parks – vertical green on buildings and green structures make cities more attractive and resilient;

    Food:Food habits, -production, -waste, -safety and food security solutions;

    Health:The contribution of green structures to a healthy living environment as well as the
    contribution made by green spaces to the physical and mental vitality of the citizens;

    Energy:Finding solutions to address sustainable energy, heat stress and climate adaptation, as well as the contribution of green spaces for a liveable city.

    Food production plays a major role in the green city of the future. The question is, what role can agriculture and horticulture play in accelerating this vision? The Netherlands is the second largest food producer worldwide, which is special given its small area for growing. This makes the Netherlands a hotspot for potential agricultural and horticultural innovations.

    Floriade will open its doors for six months from: April-October 2022.
