A conversation with the Expert Community: Giuseppe Scionti shares his view on plant based protein and the impact of COVID-19

20 May 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic is causing disruptions across the global food supply particularly in the meat industry, investors are showing an appetite for alternative ways to feed the global population.

Food Tank president, Danielle Nierenberg, spoke with Giuseppe Scionti, EIT Food Accelerator Network Alumni, a member of the Food R&D Expert community and CEO and Co-founder of Novameat, about the impact of COVID-19 on the meat industry and what this could mean for the plant-based protein market. He also gave us some insight into the ingredients and techniques that go into printing edible (and tasty) animal tissues.
