Nutreco and Trouw Nutrition host AgriVision 2023: Illuminating a path to future-proof protein production

The AgriVision 2023 conference will deliver a forecast for future-proofing protein production over the next 50 years, as agribusiness and food industry changemakers from around the world gather on June 26-28 in Noordwijk aan Zee, the Netherlands. Participants representing every segment of the food chain – from raw ingredient suppliers to food manufacturers and retailers – will explore pathways to meet growing protein demand responsibly and sustainably.

Entrepreneurs and leaders representing global business, NGOs, science, academia and agriculture will envision a path to feed the world’s future population, through a combination of business, science, policy and grassroots action. AgriVision 2023 will shed light on practical pathways for balancing the growing global demand for protein with the limitations of natural production resources. Presenters will share examples of successes achieved through innovation and investments in people, products, programmes and policies. Remarking on the conference, Trouw Nutrition CEO, David Blakemore, said:

Innovation, collaboration and relentless exploration are all essential for us to safely and sustainably meet future demand for affordable protein. AgriVision 2023 will serve as a visionary, yet practical, forum where ideas can be vetted and explored, and successful lessons applied beyond industry borders.
David Blakemore - Trouw Nutrition CEO

Perspectives shared at AgriVision 2023 will give attendees a 360-degree view of the protein production journey, from sourcing production inputs to assessing shareholder economics. For example, keynote speaker Paul Polman, former Unilever CEO, will share how Unilever adopted a multi-stakeholder model that delivered a 290% increase in shareholder returns while putting the company consistently at the top of sustainability rankings. Participants will also hear from young innovators like Talash Huijbers, a Kenyan farmer whose circular production model is utilising black soldier flies to process 60 tons of organic waste daily for fertiliser while supplying protein for human and animal nutrition.

More than a dozen other speakers will deliver viewpoints that answer some of the most critical questions affecting protein production, such as:

· What does the data say about the state of protein supply and demand in the next 50 years?

· What tailwinds can be leveraged to improve protein production?

· What headwinds must be managed to ward off threats?

· What are some early warning indicators on the horizon that must be mitigated?

· How can different segments of the production chain work together more effectively?

· How is 2023 a moment of opportunity to reset progress toward safely, efficiently and sustainably feeding the future?

· Among myriad options available today and emerging on the horizon, what paths provide the brightest opportunities for future-proofing protein production?

AgriVision is a biannual conference introduced in 2000 by Trouw Nutrition and Nutreco. This year’s conference marks the first in-person AgriVision since 2017. Registration details are available at AgriVision 2023 - Trouw Nutrition.
