Description

In 2017, Lou Cooperhouse spoke at EAT THINK DRINK and provided an overview of the transformative changes that are occurring in the food industry, and innovations that he predicted for the coming decades. Lou spoke about the tremendous opportunities are on the horizon with alternative protein products, and focused particularly on one category, which he called “cellular aquaculture”. This event became the launch and the birthplace of a transformative new company called BlueNalu, representing a new “wave” of thinking and innovation, and resulting in the largest seed round fundraising, globally, in this new category of cell-based foods. Lou co-founded BlueNalu, and organized a team of experts to develop healthy, safe and sustainable cell-based seafood made directly from real fish cells.

On Monday, November 4 at the ‘Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach, EAT THINK DRINK: Making Waves – BlueNalu & the Future of Food will explore how science and innovation can provide solutions through sustainable practices in our food supply and unveil an exciting collaborative initiative.

Special guest and keynote speaker Lou Cooperhouse, CEO of BlueNalu, will discuss how the company offers consumers a sustainable solution with fresh and frozen seafood products that are trusted, safe, and not only beneficial to our health, but also our planet. A tremendous supporter for the development of an innovative ecosystem in the Aloha State, Lou has 35 years of experience in the food industry on the forefront of food innovation, and has worked extensively within the State of Hawaii over the past decade.

Greg Murphy, BlueNalu’s Director of Corporate Development & Strategic Partnerships, will moderate a panel discussion featuring:

  • Rachael Roehl, Operations & Waste Diversion Manager, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii

  • Anthony Aalto, Producer, Green Island Films
