We would like to invite you to join us in the Food's Future Summit 2018 in Hong Kong. It's a two-day Summit which includes keynote speeches, panel discussions and workshops in the discussion of solutions to sustainable food's future. Summit attendees will be able to have more intimate discussions and hands-on experiences in a wide range of intersting topics imminent to our food's future and lead by experts and warriors. 

Date: September 22nd, 2018 

The Panel Workshop:

Our founder Katharina Unger will join the panel workshop with Sonalie Figueiras, the CEO of Green Queen & Ekowarehouse for the topic "The Future of Protein" 

"With the livestock industry responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all the world's cars, trains, ships and plans put together and scientists asserting that 'reducing meat consumption is the single biggest way to reduce your impact on Earth,' the future of food will certainly involve alternatives to animal protein. Across the globe, food tech companies are developing groundbreaking plant-based food products that mimic the taste and texture of animal foods, think eggs made from mung beans, beef burgers made from wheat starch, pork made from peas and shrimp made from algae.

But not everyone is sold. In this thought-provoking panel, Green Queen's Sonalie Figueiras will explore the controversy surrounding these game-changing products: Are they healthy? Are they ethical? Can they convert die-hard meat-eaters? Why are some vegans up in arms about them?"
