Forum Carni will deal with the meat analogues and the cultivated meat

Under the slogan “To meat or not to meat”, the cases of success, challenges and opportunities for alternatives to traditional beef will be addressed.

The growing demand for alternative products to meat by consumers has been collected by the food industry itself and has allowed the birth of new companies that aim to offer innovative products on the market.

The proposals that exist nowadays as alternatives to the traditional meat are basically of two types: the meat analogues on the basis of vegetal protein (already present in the market) and, in the future to explore, the cultivated meat.

In this regard, the next Forum Carni, which will be held on November 6 in the Auditorium of the Palau de Congressos in Girona and which will be co-organized by Interempresas and IRTA, will focus on these thematic issues. The Forum Carni is designed with and for the meat sector, for this reason, within the Advisory Committee is PIMEC, AMEC, FECIC, ANAFRIC and INNOVACC.
