From farm to fork, new networks are emerging, distances are becoming shorter, supply chains more flexible and food products more traceable. The food market of the future is decentralised and functions as a digital network that brings consumers and producers closer together again, as the "point of production" moves ever closer to the "point of consumption". At the same time, new digital instruments allow modern forms of cooperation.

In the panel on alternative proteins, Gertenbach and Spears were among those discussing this topic with Dr. Hans Wilhelm Windhorst (WING). According to Spears, the greatest challenge in the "laboratory production" of meat is the reduction of production costs. In order to be able to produce in series for the market, the raw materials would have to become significantly cheaper. In Germany, on the other hand, there is less willingness to take risks and invest in startups, said Gertenbach. Unlike in the USA, financing is a difficult issue.

The panel on alternative proteins included Marcus Keitzer (PHW) and Fabio Ziemßen (BALPro). 2019 hsa been a very exciting year for all those working in the field of alternative proteins, Marcus Keitzer stated at the Farm & Food 2020 in Berlin. "We are dealing with a new generation of products that appeal to the middle of society today." The association BALPro is a platform of interest in the market, where all the (new) players in the field of alternative proteins can network and exchange information about the challenges that exist here. Fabio Ziemßen continues: "In order to be able to compete with large sites in the USA, Israel, Singapore or Wageningen, we need a community, an exchange between the players whose backgroun is not the traditional food production.

The panel on alternative proteins included Bernhard Krüsken (German Farmers' Association) & Hubertus Paetow (President of the DLG). Krüsken states that the new proteins do not appear out of nowhere. Raw materials are also needed here and in the course of this, the protein topic is an important part of our sustainability discussion. The question of how food from these new production processes will be evaluated in the future also has yet to be answered, says Paetow. Here you'll find an extract from the debate.

FARM & FOOD CONGRESS

INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS BERLIN

18 JANUARY 2021

WHAT IS FARM & FOOD?

Farm & Food is an international congress, network and platform for innovations along the value chain from field to plate. Since 2016, more than 400 decision-makers from agribusiness, the food industry, start-ups, science and politics have been meeting in Berlin every year to jointly develop solutions for a sustainable AgriFood system. Together we identify the innovations that will ensure healthy and environmentally friendly food for the consumers of today and future generations.

Farm & Food is a project of the Deutscher Bauernverlag.

OUR MISSION:

We identify the role of emerging technologies in building a productive and sustainable value network that delivers healthy and environmentally sound food for the consumer of today and future generations. In line with our mission statement “From the field to the plate”, Farm & Food is dedicated to a holistic view of innovations, trends and developments in technology, science and sustainability.

THIS IS WHAT MAKES FARM & FOOD STAND OUT:

NETWORK

Exclusive Meetings, Young Innovators: Farm & Food is the platform for exchange, brainstorming and matchmaking in AgTech and food production. We bring together farmers, industry, politics, start-ups and science.

PARTICIPATION

The Farm & Food conference is the highlight of the year. Our network however no longer is it’s background: decentralised sessions, workshops and roundtables make the expertise of our participants the foundation of our event.

KNOWLEDGE

Whether it’s research, technical expertise or scene experts: Farm & Food collects, bundles, evaluates and communicates knowledge from the large field of agriculture.

TRENDS

Who are tomorrow’s creative minds? Which app do farmers definitely not need? Our aim is to provide well-founded information and evaluation.

COMMUNICATION

Bringing value back to where it comes from: to the field, to the stable. Innovation and suitability for the future are the relevant criteria in this line of work.

MATCHING

Which startup solves which problem? Which farmer has this problem? Which investor is interested in this problem? Farm & Food has the answers.
