The Alternative Protein Show


About The Show



The Alternative Protein Show is a great big networking event where all the entities on the New Protein Landscape are invited so they can all meet each other. Just like in the map, there will be different areas for plant-based and cell-based protein, ingredients, technology, incubators & accelerators, NGOs, VC funds, government agencies and more.



January 15th-17th, 2019. Why this date? More than 20,000 food & beverage buyers, influencers, and producers of all kinds will be in town January 13-15 for the Fancy Food Show.

Such was life in the Golden Gate:
Gold dusted all we drank and ate,
And I was one of the children told,
’We all must eat our peck of gold.’
