KindEarth.Tech is hosting a virtual event to discuss the future of food and alternative protein next month, with speakers from across the industry.
November 20 sees cell-based company KindEarth.Tech host a huge virtual event, Kind Technology for Future Food.
The packed schedule includes opportunities for guests to meet food-tech innovators from Europe, America, and Asia, see pitches from startups, and learn about cruelty-free child education. You can join a book club, take part in Q&As and debates, as well as meet KindEarth.Tech co-founders Olivia Fox Cabane and Ira van Eelen.
The event is described as being for “food lovers, future optimists and sceptics”, open to the public, delegates, government and industry representatives, academics, exhibitors, investors, those in the plant-based, cell-based and fermentation-based protein sectors.
KindEarth.Tech was founded by author and public speaker Olivia Fox Cabane and Ira Van Eelen, an event designer, who has worked in healthcare ICT, marketing and think tanks.
KindEarth.Tech organises events to “mimic how the brain comes up with creative ideas, inspire others to actually take action (not just talk about taking action), and bring together international players working towards a sustainable vision.”
Guests can, for example, leave a talk to find something more inspiring to join and engage with. KindEarth.Tech held its first event in San Francisco in January 2019, and have since held events in Amsterdam and had to postpone an event in Singapore due to Covid-19.
Amongst the many speakers participating are Cor Van Der Weele, professor of humanistic philosophy at Wageningen University; vegan campaigner Armanda Govers; London-based entrepreneur Loui Blake; Green Queen founder Sonalie Figueiras; Claire Smith from Beyond Animal, a digital platform to “accelerate the growth of the ethical, cruelty-free and sustainable economy”; Jayson Claude Van Der Walt, project coordination consultant at Africa’s first cell-based meat start-up; GFI’s associate director of science, Liz Specht; Back of the Yards Algae Science, a sustainable algae-based ingredients company; Sandhya Sriram, CEO of Shiok Meats, and The Vegan Review founder Damoy Robertson.
