Or do we at least know via what mechanisms these considered good foods lead to health?

Rebel Meat introduces a hybrid hamburger

rebel meat

Cattle farming requires 25 kilograms of feed for each kilogram of meat. This basically means that a lot of valuable raw materials are wasted, Cornelia Habacher, one of the founders, explains. “We’ve been thinking about how we can feed the world in 2050. We have looked very objectively into the problem of meat consumption and associated consumption of raw materials. It turned out that there were nothing but plant-based solutions.

Reveal the hidden value of eggshell membrane – Presented by Chang Liu, Eggxpert

Chang Liu

Chang Liu, Eggxpert, will speak at Healthy Nutrition Conference, on June 26, during AgriFood Innovation Event in Venlo, The Netherlands.

Inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, scientific data and insufficient eggshell membrane management, EGGXPERT is initiating an innovative project of developing ESM into skin and health care products by employment of scientific researchers and advanced technologies.

We would start from skin care application because of quicker market entry and its impact function.

In our talk, we will show you the robust functions of eggshell membrane from scientific point of view and our innovation and sustainable solutions for product development.

We believe our solution will save egg farmers at least €10,000 per company (medium size) per year and further bring high value for their waste stream. We believe our unique selling point (USP) of being world’s first 100% egg membrane-based natural product will most serve the consumers.
