Contribute to the conversation on how we can expand the production of plant-based protein within the East of England's supply chain.
Meat consumption is a leading cause of Climate Change due to the excessive carbon emissions emitted by the industry. It is now more important than ever to reduce our impact on the planet by shifting society's diet.
Plant-based protein is a sustainable alternative to meat consumption. However, it's production and distribution channels are limited. Join us for our roundtable to discuss this issue. We will focus on how to expand the production of plant-based protein within the East of England's supply chain.
