Episode 20: Dr Rosie Bosworth on the rise of alternative protein

Dr Rosie Bosworth is an investor, storyteller and food futurist who is extremely passionate about the future of agriculture, especially in Australia and NZ. She holds a PhD in environmental innovation and sustainable technology development from the University of Auckland Business School. 

In this episode, we discuss several questions, some quite controversial and thought provoking, including:

  • What is the role of pastoral agricultural systems in the future?
  • What are “clean meat” “alternative protein” and “plant-based” protein...and what do they taste like?
  • Does alternative protein and dairy need to taste like their traditional counterparts to gain market share?
  • How is industry responding to the growth of alternative protein? How can farmers respond to this emerging trend, if at all?
