Welcome to the Alternative Fats & Oils Summit

With the emergence of algae, yeast, and fungi, coupled with the rise of new technologies such as oleogels, the alternative fat and oil industry is experiencing remarkable growth and innovation in recent years. Driven by evolving consumer preferences and sustainability concerns, alternative fat food techs are dominating the market with their novel products that hit the criteria for optimal functionality and structural stability.

From plant-based meat analogues to cultivated seafood and fermentation-led dairy products, the inaugural Alternative Fats & Oils Summit brought together 60+ industry experts, including alternative fat and protein food techs, ingredient providers, CPG companies, and investors to unveil their latest technological advancements in plant-based, microbial, and cultivated production of healthy and tasty fats and oils.

Our audience joined us in April 2024 to hear about the next steps in achieving scalable production methods, cost optimization strategies, and regulatory considerations to accelerate the commercialization of sustainable alternatives. Whether you’re eager to learn why lipids are important precursors for the formation of meat aromas during thermal generation, or how you can leverage acoustic pressure field technologies in fat and oil structuration, this summit offered a unique forum to satiate your curiosity from Nourish Ingredients, Perfat Technologies, and more.
