The Smart Protein Summit 2022 is curated and convened by The Good Food Institute India, the central expert organization, thought leader, and convening body in the Indian ‘alternative protein’ sector.

With unique insights across science, business, and policy, we are using the collective power of food innovation and markets to accelerate the rebuilding of our broken food system by transitioning toward smart protein.

This year, we’re proud to announce that the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry - FICCI is an Organizing Partner for the Smart Protein Summit 2022. FICCI is India's largest and oldest apex business organization, and their history is closely interwoven with the country’s independence, industrial growth, and emergence as an economy to be reckoned with.

Together, in our efforts to build a National Mission for Smart Protein, we’ve designed the Summit to serve as a novel platform that highlights smart protein’s untapped potential, furthers our progress, and lays out how the sector is poised to become a key pillar of India’s new green economy.

For the uninitiated, the smart protein sector is at the forefront of global food innovation, with major benefits for people, planet, and profit. Across the world, entrepreneurs, food scientists, and researchers are already producing the future of food — smart protein products made from plants, cells, and microorganisms that perfectly replicate the sensory and cultural resonance of traditional meat, eggs, and dairy.

In India, the smart protein sector has grown at an exponential rate over the last 2 years.

In the midst of a pandemic that ravaged the country, it became evident that we need a more secure, sustainable, and just protein supply. We’ve seen the industry grow from just a handful of stakeholders to a thriving sunrise sector with 50+ startups, 80+ supporting companies, investments poised to grow exponentially, and policy advancements beginning to take clear shape. Today, with an increasing number of prominent companies and household names entering the industry, people across India are quickly beginning to take note of this burgeoning sector.

This is no accident. Over the last five years, GFI India has been carefully paving the way for the sector to take off by building a National Mission for Smart Protein.

Our strategic partnerships with leading research universities, innovation and biotechnology hubs, multilateral and government institutions, business consortia, and a host of crucial collaborators — all integral to the growth of this industry, have enabled us to prime the sector for success. Never before have so many key stakeholders across industry, policy, or academia come to the collective realization that in one stroke, investing in smart protein could propel the industries of the future, stave off climate change, and safeguard food security and public health for our growing population, for generations.

Building on this conviction, at this year’s Summit we have a single-minded focus on accelerating the momentum, forging collaborations, and leaving no stone unturned in the way of making Smart Protein a key pillar of India’s new green economy.

We’ve got an action-packed agenda for our 2-day Summit

You’ll hear from movers and shakers from the industry — leading corporations, trailblazing startups, influential think tanks, major policy and government groups, and iconic leaders in the smart protein sector as they bring their voices forward and share their valuable insights and expertise.

We look forward to seeing you at the event for the smart protein sector in India, where you can network, collaborate and learn from leading minds in the sector.
Mark your calendars now!
