A new emerging proteins network was launched this month to meet bigger overseas competitions by coordinating New Zealand’s response to the growing food sector. A recent report prompted Emerging Proteins NZ and highlighted that New Zealand needs to strengthen investment and research focus in the sector of plant protein, where global sales surged 17% in 2018. FoodHQ’s CEO Dr Abby Thompson says NZ is capable of growing a wide range of plants for alternative protein industry but with the need of understanding the market, and the biggest barrier is a lack of capital and infrastructure.
