Look beyond vegetal or conventional protein sources

On 22 November, the European Commission adopted a report on the ‘Development of Plant Proteins in the European Union’. Intended to explore possible avenues in response to the Protein Deficit in Europe, this document was presented on the occasion of a high-level conference co-organised with the Austrian Presidency on 22 and 23 November (in Vienna). Reacting to the communication, the IPIFF President Antoine Hubert stated: ‘as representative organisations for the algae and insect production sectors, we do welcome the European Commission plans to develop plant protein production in the EU. We do however believe that the EU institutions should look beyond vegetal or conventional protein sources, and notably explore possible synergies with ‘new’ proteins sources’.
