While facing climate change and natural resource scarcity, ensuring sufficient, nutritious, safe and affordable food to a fast growing world population with changing dietary habits becomes increasingly challenging. The protein supply is in this respect most critical. Integration of a variety of new or alternative protein sources from both terrestrial and aquatic origin into new and/or existing processes or products needs to be explored, in order to develop and ensure more sustainable, resilient supply chains, featuring high consumer acceptability by a clean labelling approach and attractive market opportunities.
Sharing this goal, the EU H2020 funded projects NextGenProteins, ProFuture, smart protein and SUSINCHAIN launched Horizon4Proteins at the end of 2021 to work together in key aspects such as: Consumer acceptance of alternative proteins, Safety and Regulatory challenges, Food applications, and Sustainability. Beginning of 2023, the EU Horizon Europe funded projects GIANT LEAPS and LIKE-A-PRO joined the collaboration.
