Australia and New Zealand’s largest B2B Publishing company, Intermedia, has launched Future Alternative, a new event for the emerging plant-based and alternative protein sector.

The event will take place at Sydney’s Shangri-La Hotel on 26 November and will feature representatives from the leading FMCG brands, accommodation, retail, foodservice, academia, ESG investment community, and agriculture, to discuss one of the country’s exciting industries.

Research by Food Frontier has found 42 per cent of Australians are eating less or no meat, and in FY20, Australia’s plant-based meat sector saw a 46 per cent increase in grocery retail sales.

As consumers become more aware of the impact their diet choices have on their health and the environment, it presents a huge opportunity for businesses to capitalise on this shift in purchasing habits.

Future Alternative will encompass a range of engaging panel discussions as well as presentations from innovative thought leaders. Stakeholders from the sector will be represented, including but not limited to v2food, CSIRO, Food Frontier, Ampol, Fable, NSW Farmers, and others.

The event will be held from 8:30am – 12pm on 26 November at Shangri-La Sydney and will feature plant-based catering by Shangri-La Sydney’s executive chef, Brent Morley.
