According to BCG, the global market for new proteins is expected to reach US$290 billion (about RMB 2.08 trillion) in 2035, accounting for 11% of the market share of all protein types. In recent years, microorganisms have also gradually come into the vision of China's agri-food companies, becoming the third largest source of protein in addition to traditional crops and livestock resources. What are the products and applications of global and local innovative companies based on different microbial species and technology pathways? What are the consumer perceptions? The results of the Consumer Communication Study on Fermented Protein Products will be presented exclusively on-site!
