In the decades to come, the world will witness an evolution where food production systems that are bio-regenerative will be needed to provide communities with nutritious, tasty, and affordable foods.

This book offers some vital in depth, current and future trends to ingredient suppliers, R&D Teams, food companies and capital ventures that will help enhance competitive intelligence.

In his entire professional career, Henk Hoogenkamp has been ahead of the curve, oftentimes more right than wrong. With brutal honesty and lots of inside information, Henk gives a fresh voice to the rapidly changing and emerging dynamics of protein technology and its socioeconomic interactions.

Written with a refreshingly straightforward and engaging style, Henk shares practical knowhow reflecting the skills needed to globally nourish and promote wellbeing with great-tasting food for tomorrow and beyond.
