The Good Food Conference 2023: Path To 2030
The Good Food InstituteThrough Sep 20th
The Good Food Institute (GFI) hosts the Good Food Conference 2023: Path To 2030 at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. The conference occurs at a critical moment in time for the alternative protein field and the future of food and agriculture. Around the world, alternative proteins are increasingly recognized as an essential solution that can make possible a far more sustainable, secure, and just food future — but huge challenges remain and success is not inevitable.
With a shared sense of urgency and focus, GFI is zeroing in on three main themes throughout GFC 2023, each critical to advancing alt protein science, policy, and market momentum around the world at the pace and scale needed. The themes are: “Bold goals and global challenges;” “Science, innovation, and ecosystem-building;” and “Cross-sector collaborations and commitments.”
The three-day event features an evening welcome reception on Monday, September 18, 2023 (5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.); an exhibit hall; networking opportunities; poster showcases; BIPOC, women, LGBTQ, and non-binary meet-ups; plenary sessions; expert roundtables; and the GFC 2023 Alt Protein Food Festival on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 (6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.).

Catalyzing a global protein transition requires investing in science, strengthening the research ecosystem, securing policy solutions and level playing fields, and creating and sustaining market momentum around the world. All of this requires cross-sector collaboration, commitment, and a shared sense of urgency.
In curating the program for Good Food Conference 2023, GFI’s subject-matter experts focused on a series of sessions, workshops, and other experiences that advance all of the above, and with a sense of optimism, energy, and gratefulness for doing this game-changing work alongside an ever-growing community of colleagues committed to a world where alternative proteins are no longer alternative.
