ICEX Webinar – “Foodtech – The rise of alternative protein in the World”

Webinar by ICEX Spain Trade & Investment, with the global network of Economic & Commercial Offices of Spain

We are excited to invite you to this upcoming event on April 13 2021 by ICEX Spain Trade & Investment, together with the global network of Economic & Commercial Offices of Spain. 

The event consists of a series of 4 webinars on foodtech. This initiative revolves around strengthening the business network of the rising Spanish ecosystem, showing it to the world and to present success stories and interesting projects from other countries to enhance collaboration.

Spain is a leader in the European food industry and is developing a highly unique ecosystem with more than 400 startups working hard on developing and improving ingredient production, transformation efficiency and optimizing the sustainability of people and the planet through innovative technological solutions that impact the entire agri-food value chain. These projects also have the potential to ease the access to better food, reduce food waste and limit the impact of industrial waste.

The first webinar on April 13 will bring together companies, entrepreneurs, and startups that are working in the alternative protein segment around the world, both plant-based and cell-based, highlighting the importance of this category in the future of the food system.

There will be two sessions of the same webinar with different local roundtable participants, the first in Singapore and the next in Los Angeles. Both sessions will be approximately 1h30 long.

We will hear from successful speakers in both sessions, including Santi Aliaga (CEO Zyrcular Foods) who will discuss the full integration of the value chain and a few Spanish pioneers such as Bernat Ananos (Co-founder & CSMO Heüra), Giuseppe Sconti (CEO & Founder Novameat) and Iñigo Charola (CEO Biotech Food).

Our CEO José Luis Cabañero (Eatable Adventures) will also join both sessions welcoming the guests and participating in the international roundtable.
