About the Session
Join us for the Welcoming Address as we explore what you will learn at The Future of Protein Production Chicago. Peter Mortimer, Event Manager, will extend a warm welcome to participants, speakers, and partners. His brief introduction will lay out the challenges facing the sector, such as scalability hurdles, high production costs, regulatory barriers, consumer acceptance, taste and texture mimicry, sourcing sustainable ingredients, addressing nutritional concerns, ensuring food safety, competing with traditional protein sources, navigating supply chain complexities, and overcoming skepticism from traditional industries. Challenges that you will hear have been overcome by many of our speakers and panelists.
