In the future, it will become increasingly challenging to sustainably feed a growing world population.

The 6th of July, a webinar organised by the VBIG (“Verbond Bio-ingenieurswetenschappen Gent”) explored the possible solutions that cellular food production can offer. Can we feed the world with microbial protein? Can cultured meat offer a worthy alternative to meat? And where are the challenges to achieve this?

Professor – and Avecom’s Managing Director – Willy Verstraete presented our latest developments and current insights on the topic “Microbial Protein Production in the Context of Water, Food and Climate Change“.
