Sustainable Protein Production Summit | Kisaco Research

Innovative solutions to develop a more sustainable livestock production system

View Agenda
VIRTUAL SUMMIT | EDT TIMEZONE
8-10 September, 2020

The innovation showcase is a unique opportunity for start-ups tackling the sustainability challenges that occur in primary production to showcase in front of the entire value chain.

Registered delegates will have the unique opportunity to book 20-minute-long pre-scheduled private 1-2-1 meetings during the conference using our dedicated meeting platform, Meeting MOJO.

Why Attend

Achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 is a growing priority for the agricultural industry. With 11% of greenhouse gas emissions, most notably nitrous oxide and methane coming from agricultural production, the environmentally-conscious consumer is demanding change across the value chain.

The demand for innovation on the farm is ever-increasing. Using that modernization to improve sustainability in protein production on the farm, as well as ensuring greater efficiencies and productivity, one is far closer to the net-zero carbon goal.

Introducing the inaugural Sustainable Protein Production Summit, taking place online, September 8 - 10.

Building on the global success of the Animal Health Investment series, join the entire animal health and farming industry, including; start-ups, feed and ingredient companies, retailers and food producers, investors and governmental organizations to review the latest trailblazing innovation designed to address the sustainability challenges that occur in the production of ruminants, poultry, swine and salmonids. 

As many of the most detrimental sustainability issues arise in the primary production phase, the summit will showcase innovation in categories including raw materials, feed, health & nutrition, genetics and technology to enhance productivity and help the industry meet its net-zero carbon goals.
