From insights and trends to testing the food of the future.
10:00 – 10:30 GMT. How are trends and events influencing consumer choice for more sustainable food options? – Gisele Gurgel, Business Insights & Analytics Director, Tetra Pak
According to our latest Tetra Pak Index, COVID-19 has displaced the environment as the number one consumer concern, but still, this is ahead of anything else, even economic issues. Consumers are more and more aware of a dilemma between the need for greater consumption of food and the impact on our planet – both in terms of packaging waste and food waste – and they are looking to businesses to helping them solve this tension. In this session, Gisele will discuss how at-home trends have been accelerated by the pandemic, with health and responsible consumption remaining key.
13:00 – 13:30 GMT. Sustainable ingredients case study 1 – Tetra Pak’s Ola Ström and Tebrito’s Bertrand Giorgi
In this joint session with Tebrito, Tetra Pak representative Ola Strom and Tebrito's Bertrand Giorgi will discuss the aim of making insect protein available for food products while making the insect itself invisible. Ever since the EU approval of insect protein for consumption, there has been an eagerness to explore how we can make this an industry reality. Ola Strom is a Food Technologist at Tetra Pak and Bertrand Giorgi is working as Cheif Operations Officer at Tebrito. Together, they have conducted trials virtually and gathered knowledge to push the industry forward. In this presentation, they share their learnings from these product trials and the steps that will be needed to start scaling up.
