The results obtained in the report carried out by the Triptolemos Foundation on the "Impact of social networks on the eating habits of adolescents" in which 23 experts have participated will be analyzed. The study shows, among other things, that there is an age range that takes influencers as a reference, giving their messages more credibility than scientific evidence. These contents can condition the eating habits of this segment of the population, which in Spain registers overweight and obesity rates of around 20%. How do the actions that are carried out both from the public and private sector? How do experts approach this issue from their different areas?

The artisan butchers' collective presents an innovation, a new line of products in their sector, to facilitate the production of traditional dishes based on artisan products without additives.

The Innovation Committee detected the interest of younger customers in traditional cooking dishes. A solution had to be found to cover this need in such a way that it was achievable, easy, quick and of the highest quality.

In order to be able to reach the entire population interested in this gastronomic solution, it is necessary for its preparation to be adapted and customized by any artisan with a whistleblower.

These culinary bases presented in Innoval will soon be disseminated and explained to all Catalan artisans so that their customers can have this product line.

These culinary bases are intended for cooked dishes based on legume (white mongetes, lentils, peas and beans), paste and rice.

04-04-2022 12:15 04-04-2022 12:30 Europe/Madrid Future of food: sustainability and digital transformation as innovation drivers.

The need for evolving our agri-food system towards a more sustainable model with a lower environmental impact, together with the availability of new technologies at a competitive cost, have become divers for innovation in the agri-food sector. This fact adds to the intrinsic characteristics of the sector, which offers products with high standards of quality, safety and health to the consumers, as well as to the social demand of more sustainable products and alternatives to animal origin.

As a result, the new innovation trends include plant-based or biotech alternatives to dairy and meat products. In vitro models of increased performance reduce the necessity for animal testing. These trends offer an answer to the current social and environmental challenges. In addition to that, the digital technologies have revolutionized the food production, boosting the benefits for the health of people and the planet.

Since the outbreak of the Great Recession, societies have been shaken by various traumatic events: the economic crisis has hit many homes, particularly the most vulnerable. When it seemed like we were back to normal, the terrible Covid-19 pandemic, which began two years ago, once again sowed material and emotional fears, especially among young people. As if that weren't enough, a few weeks ago Russia invaded Ukraine, causing irreparable damage, which is inevitably splashing the governments, businesses and citizens of our country. In the face of this rampant uncertainty, how does the consumer react? What attitudes and behaviors arise? Does the lack of certainty affect us all equally?

The global food production system is outdated and inefficient to meet today's challenges: world population growth, responsible management of natural resources, and environmental protection.

How will we feed 9 million people in 2050?

Production must be local to be more efficient, sustainable, fair and safe. At Blendhub, we were visionaries more than a decade ago when we created a collaborative platform to offer food as a service anywhere in the world through a network of multi-located centers on four continents.Platform collaboration with partners aligned in values is the only way to transform the global food system towards a more sustainable, efficient and safe production that guarantees access to healthy food to more people in more places, thus creating shared value for society and the planet

LODYN is an innovative company focused on the natural improvement of the nutritional profile of dairy products. Dairy products have traditionally been discouraged due to their high content of saturated fat. At LODYN we have been working for years on the nutritional improvement of milk, from its fat profile to its antioxidants, and its positive effect on cardiovascular diseases and on people's immune system. Together with IDIPAZ and the collaboration of CIAL, at LODYN we have developed a project that covers:

- The design of diets for animal feed that makes animals naturally produce milk enriched in omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants.

- The reduction of methane emissions into the atmosphere through the use of this feed in farms.

- The evaluation, through a Clinical Intervention Trial at the University Hospital of La Paz, of the benefits in human health of the consumption of cheeses made with this naturally improved milk.

Consumers today are concerned not only about food quality, but also about nutritional qualities, food safety and sustainability. It is no longer enough to manufacture quality food, but rather it must be healthy and without risk of contamination caused by toxic substances, pathogens, allergens, or foreign matter. Technology has evolved a lot, both in the field of Photonic Technologies and in Computing and Artificial Intelligence, making it possible to carry out controls to identify risks in the same production line very quickly. This paper will review the main inspection and control technologies, such as artificial vision, spectroscopy, hyperspectral vision or biosensors, as well as the advantages of using Machine Learning techniques, showing use cases and applications. real that allow to control the quality and safety of 100% of the production.

In 2018 we detected one of the most appealing flavors in the dairy world was Kefir. After carrying out tests with consumers and with our clients, we launched shortly after the first Kefir spread on the market. A healthy product, with clean labeling and that in these years has brought us much joy.

The presentation will propose the need to modify our current agri-food system towards a more sustainable model, based on the development of new plant-based foods with a better impact on the environment. To

achieve this, the technological lines with the greatest impact and potential will be presented, such as

extrusion technology and fermentation. This method is capable of modify the structural, nutritional and

sensory properties of new plant-based ingredients and thus achieving the development of new food

structures with appropriate nutritional and sensory properties. The lines of research addressed at AINIA

related to extrusion processes (TVP and HMEC) to obtain meat analogs, as well as the application of

fermentative processes to obtain dairy analogs from plant sources, will also be presented.

05-04-2022 10:45 05-04-2022 10:11 Europe/Madrid Sustainable meat alternatives: micoproteins and in vitro meat.

Nowadays, the main source of protein has an animal origin, so an increase in demand would mean a 40% increase in the consumption of meat products in the next 20 years. This increased demand raises the need to ensure the sustainability of the food chain, not only through more efficient processes, but also by identifying new protein sources for the development of a more competitive, sustainable, and inclusive economy (European Strategy 2020). In this presentation, we will talk about biotechnological alternatives for protein production, exploring different protein sources, from protein produced by fungal mycelium to in vitro meat, from a nutritional, sustainability, and industrial viability point of view.

It is estimated that by 2040, 60% of the meat we will consume will not be of animal origin.

The macro trends of population growth and global food demand, combined with greater sensitivities towards sustainability, animal welfare and health, will pose great challenges that will make us rethink what we eat and how we produce it. 

In this sense, from ACCION - Generalitat de Catalunya - we promote this session together with INNOVACC - the meat and alternative protein cluster, which aims to:

. Publicize these trends and the conclusions of the study: "Alternative protein as a driver of change in the food industry in Catalonia: mapping and analysis", prepared by the General Directorate of Industry of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

. The action plan promoted jointly by ACCION and the INNOVACC cluster

. Case studies of innovative Catalan companies with alternative protein

The practical cases are gathered in the program of activities under the theme ''The alternative protein to Catalonia"

In the new world that is developing from alternatives to meat products, we must not only dominate the technology or the ingredients, but we must also know the possibilities of evolution of each ingredient and each technology to create "living" formulas that allow us to improve all products. the days. The concept of a stable traditional product on the market loses a lot of meaning in the world of "Future Food" and we need to move forward every day to create on the existing base. This can only be achieved by studying all the technologies, ingredients, products, processes, market trends, cooking each ingredient. How to choose the ingredients, how to study them, how to apply technology every day to "perfect", how to combine all this, how to cook them... Only a dedicated, multidisciplinary team with technicians, scientists and chefs and having all the industrial and culinary technologies can make Futur Food become Today's Food every day with perfect mimetic products of traditional meat products.

Today and tomorrow in sustainable and balanced cuisine

Jordi Solís
Jordi Solís PAYMSA - CARINSA GROUP Director

05-04-2022 12:20 05-04-2022 12:30 Europe/Madrid Today and tomorrow in sustainable and balanced cuisine

Future food demand, especially meat and protein-rich products, is one of the most worrying aspects in view of population growth figures. In recent decades, the global consumption of animal protein has increased considerably. By 2050, the FAO forecasts a world population of 9 billion and a necessary meat production of 410 million kg per year.

In this sense, the search for new alternative sources of protein to animals and suitable for human consumption, animal consumption as well as to restore the quality of the soil will constitute one of the most relevant avenues of research in the future. These new sources of protein will come both from de novo proteins and from assessments of different by-products, giving a new use to materials that are not currently being used. Therefore, the solution to these great challenges must come from a renewable, sustainable source that is part of a zero waste strategy

The replication of processed meat products in vegan products presents an important difficulty due to the very different characteristics of animal and vegetable fats.

In the last two years, Metalquimia's QDSnacks technology has provided high-productivity industrial solutions for the production of this type of product in continuous processes, with the application of different strategies, but always based on this technology, which basically consists of the application of air in different temperature and humidity conditions directly on thin layers of the product, whether slices or thin pieces. The QDSnacks technology offers vegan product designers new development tools that can allow both the expansion of the range and the reduction of the level of additives needed to obtain some of the existing ones.

Nomen presents individual servings of rice that are prepared in just one minute and offer all the flavor and nutritional value thanks to an innovative sustainable packaging system. The goal was to achieve a convenience product that would take a step forward in terms of taste and quality. The challenge has been achieved and is called Qualitat1Minut. The essence lies in two aspects: raw material and R+D. The challenge, therefore, resided largely in the process and the packaging system. And the technical teams, the human teams and the investment have focused on this issue. One of the requirements that the R+D+ and Nomen Foods team self-imposed was to be able to offer 100% sustainable packaging. There was previously no ready-to-eat product on the market that complied with this premise and at the same time could offer qualities that would allow the product to be excellent. The result that has been reached has two keys: reusable glass and a closure system.

The demand for alternative protein-based products is increasing on a daily basis. And so, in turn, is their availability in the market as industry seeks to achieve perfect mimicking of animal-based products imitations. But what about the challenges yet to be overcome? How to improve the taste and nutritional profile of these products? How to make them more accessible? How to shorten the list of ingredients they contain? With the experience and knowledge generated by CNTA's research, we will see how these challenges can be overcome to produce dairy, meat or seafood analogues which fully emulate their animal counterparts. We will do this by understanding the role that ingredients and promising technologies such as fermentation, extrusion or 3D printing can play.

This presentation will expose what the halal certificate is, how to get it and what business opportunities it opens in the food sector. For companies to benefit from the growth in the halal food consumption, they need to identify the market they want to target, and consequently decide which certification company is the optimal to enter that country with the best guarantees of success, since there are multiple certifiers. It will also explain what commercial values halal certification entails for the Muslim consumer.

Precision fermentation: never ending source of new ingredients

06-04-2022 12:00 06-04-2022 13:00 Europe/Madrid Precision fermentation: never ending source of new ingredients

Precision fermentation (the use of microorganisms which serve as "bio-factories" to produce specific ingredients) is a booming trend in the food industry. Based on existing knowledge in the field of traditional fermentation, food biotechnology through directed fermentation opens the way to an unlimited spectrum of ingredients with which to create flavours, textures and aromas, and improve the nutritional profile of the foods for which they are intended. In a world in which sustainability is no longer an option but a need and the tag "natural" is becoming a must, the use of continuous bioreactors in a limited space which use vegetable by-products as fermentation substrates allows for the production of ingredients with a high degree of purity which are more profitable than those produced by chemical synthesis or extraction.

06-04-2022 16:00 06-04-2022 17:00 Europe/Madrid Presentation of the Agrofood Sectorial Report of CaixaBank Research

The outbreak of the war in Ukraine has overshadowed the positive outlook that we anticipated for this 2022. It is still early to know the scope and repercussion of the conflict on the Spanish economy and the agri-food sector in particular, but in the short term the main channel of impact is the rise in energy.

It can be said that it never rains, but it pours. In 2021, the agri-food sector was already heavily pressured by rising production costs. The conflict in Ukraine represents a new energy shock and will delay the normalization of global value chains. In addition, the sector could be affected by a possible shortage of certain inputs from the “breadbasket of Europe”.

Expectations are placed on the NGEU funds, which should be a catalyst for investment in innovation and digital transformation, and this will help consolidate the high international competitiveness enjoyed by the Spanish agri-food sector.

The presentation will deal with how, after the COVID-10 pandemic, concern for healthy eating and lifestyle has become more acute, resulting in an opportunity for the industry to develop healthy foods. In this framework, one of the trends on which to base the design of new foods is precision nutrition, a concept of personalized nutrition that considers the multidimensional characteristics of the individual or of a specific population group for the promotion of health. Scientific support is fundamental and in this sense omics technologies as well as in vitro and in vivo studies are of special relevance. The lines of research addressed by AINIA to carry out preclinical studies will also be presented.

Voluntary food labeling and consumer perception, keys to building trust

Xavier Pera
Xavier Pera AECOC Head of Food Safety and Quality

07-04-2022 11:00 07-04-2022 12:00 Europe/Madrid Voluntary food labeling and consumer perception, keys to building trust

The food sector is constantly adapting to the needs and expectations of consumers, responding to new consumer trends: organic products, products "without", proximity, sustainable, ethical, healthy, etc. In this context, transparency and good practices in the use of claims in product labeling are essential in generating consumer confidence. Only from clear, truthful and transparent information can we generate the necessary credibility and trust in consumers to consolidate the food transition.
