NovaMeat to Demonstrate 3D Printed Steaks at Alt Protein Conference on September 9
The Future of Meat: Hybrid is the theme of this year’s Alt Protein conference, organized by Protein Directory and Cell Agri. Experts in the field of proteins of the future will speak, including Giuseppe Scionti, CEO and founder of NovaMeat, a Spanish company that develops plant-based and 3D cell meat.
The event focuses on companies transforming the future of meat through cultured and plant-based meat, referring to the future of meat as a hybrid.
According to the event’s official website, attendees will be able to learn about “key business opportunities in alternative proteins as the field evolves into hybrid products and network with business leaders and cellular agriculture scientists. and the plant-based alternative protein industry”.
The event will be in English and will be held virtually this September 9 from 4-10:35 p.m. CEST. Interested persons can register here.
Founded in 2018, NovaMeat received funding from New Crop Capital, the private equity fund that focuses on investing in the plant sector, including companies such as Beyond Meat, Zero Egg and Good Catch, among others. Earlier this year, vegconomist en español reported that the Spanish government had invested €250,000 in NovaMeat, which came from CDTI’s (Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial) NEOTEC program.
The company also claimed this year that it had developed the world’s largest cellular meat analogue.
“I personally believe that the future of alternative meat will not be black or white (i.e. with or without animal cells) but a variety of hybrids, where we will have new products presenting both the main advantages of plant-based strategies in terms of time and profitability, and main advantage of cultured meat strategies in terms of authenticity,” Giuseppe Scionti told vegconomist last year.
