future of protein production with plates with healthy food and protein

Brian Jacobson

Associate Director of Strategic Operations
University of Illinois

I'm a dedicated problem-solver interested in all things food and bioprocessing. Are you looking to scale a new food ingredient, design a processing facility or equipment line, or just want to talk business strategy? I'd love to chat! I have experience working with dozens of food and industrial biotech companies developing new ingredients, products, and processes across a wide range of technologies including fermentation, commodity crops, alt protein, liquid separations, extrusion, and functional beverages. I also have led teams designing and building facilities or processes at the laboratory, pilot, or production scale. I enjoy a hands-on leadership style and am equally excited to build and develop a team as I am to dig in independently and conquer the next challenge. I am open to networking or consulting/advising opportunities, and always willing to help connect into my network of industry professionals, business leaders, job seekers, equipment manufacturers, pilot facilities, co-packers, and others.
