Talk with Dr. Food
Plant Protein Alliance of Alberta (PPAA) is excited to present the first in its International Speaker Series with Dr. David Hughes in Calgary on Monday, Nov. 26th.
Dr. Hughes, also known as Dr. Food, ranks among the world’s leading authorities and spends about 300 days a year travelling the world. He gives about 90 presentations annually on food-industry trends to multinational corporations, governments and trade associations.
Plant protein demand is booming all around the world. There are real opportunities on a global scale, and Alberta and the prairie provinces cannot continue to be just low-cost commodity suppliers. It’s important to move effectively and swiftly to create commercial enterprises and to take advantage of growth opportunities.
Join Dr. Hughes, Emeritus Professor of Food Marketing at Imperial College London and Visiting Professor at the Royal Agricultural University, UK, to learn about this plant protein movement and other global agri-food trends. His presentation will be followed by a networking reception.
Date: Monday, Nov. 26
Time: 4-6:30 pm
Location: +15 level Conference Centre, Livingston Place, 222 3rd Ave. SW, Calgary
