You are invited by Quorn Foods to join them alongside Tim Finnigan for the role of evidence based nutrition research to remove uncertainty.
What will the talk discuss?
A sustainable food future can only be assured if we increase the diversity of protein choices in our diets and embrace healthy new proteins with a low environmental impact. Using the Quorn story as an example, this session will look at the scientific research agenda that has helped establish mycoprotein across 17 countries worldwide and the current challenges involved in creating a robust evidence base that can withstand critical scrutiny, advance understanding and so remove or address uncertainty.
