Event description

Description

Science fiction has become reality in the next-generation food industry. PIEP has invited several influential and pioneering companies at the forefront of this exciting field. The emerging trend in the fusion of biotechnology and food production promises to improve both productivity as well as the sustainability of resources all over the planet. Join us to learn more about how these companies operate, what their objectives are and how you can get involved (there will be an hour of networking and several are hiring!). Some of these companies will have samples! Food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be provided during the networking section.
