Organiser's description

It’s clear that animal feed supply chains in their current form are unsustainable for industrial animal production systems. To keep up with increasing global demand for meat, alternatives to the traditional feedstocks should be considered. So what role can insect protein play?

In this webinar, we will look at where we are today with regards to insects as an alternative protein; discuss the opportunities for scale and impact; and the regulatory and financial environment needed to make it happen. Hear from speakers:

• Sara Walton, Sector Lead, Agri-Food, Standards, BSI
• Arnold Van Huis, Emeritus Professor, Laboratory of Entomology, Wageningen University
• Cindy Dunston Quirk, CEO and Founder, Scout & Zoe’s Premium Pet Products
• Andrew Swift, chief executive officer, FERA

This discussion, held in partnership with BSI, will be moderated by Toby Webb, founder of Innovation Forum.
