About sustainable food innovation at CPI

Their food solutions services offer support to assist those looking to address global food security challenges while reducing environmental impacts. Their technologies can reduce land use, water consumption, pesticide use, and greenhouse gas emissions with processes that are sustainable and non-seasonal. They are currently working with industry to develop plant-based meat, alternative livestock feed and cultured meat. These new food products and processes are animal-free, aligning with veganism and an increasing acceptance of alternative sustainable foodstuffs.

We go live with Kris Wadrop & Clare Trippett of CPI to find out more.

Kris is the General Manager of commercial operations and Clare is the Chief Technologist of CPI. We cover several wide-ranging subjects including how CPI supports industry and academia with food innovation, the positive increase of cellular agriculture innovations and how plant and animal microbiomes be harnessed to improve food sustainability.
