Innovation pathways for the Irish plant-based food sector using sustainable locally sourced ingredients
Type Event Proceeding
The key objective of the event which took place Thursday, 7th April in Teagasc Ashtown was to raise awareness amongst key stakeholders in the primary production sectors about wider food (food-related) opportunities and to cultivate linkages between primary producers, processors, food ingredient companies, researchers and other stakeholders.
Divided into two sessions, the first session involved presentation from Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland, Teagasc and UCC describing the the emerging market landscape for innovative plant based products and food ingredients nationally and internationally.
The second session involved a panel discussion with four innovative companies who have developed their own innovation pathway for the Irish plant-based food sector using sustainable & locally sourced ingredients.
