Why attend?

As consumer demands for plant-based protein and meat alternatives continue to increase, so does the evolution of new categories and characteristics of these innovative plant-based products. With options ranging from plant-based burgers, seafoods, and dairy alternatives, plant-based products are an increasingly popular and tasty alternative to the mainstay protein choices you are used to seeing on your local grocery store shelf.

Key to the production of these alternatives is an effective fermentation process. This includes any compressed air, technical gas or liquid required for fermentation which needs to be filtered to a sterile level. This supports process integrity within the bioreactor. It helps to protect the critical bio-ingredients from bacterial contamination and thus supports refined flavor profiles, textures, and taste characteristics.

Donaldson offers a complete solution for these fermentation and filtration processes. Our team of specialists will give you an overview on our latest developments in this field and provide you with information on how to improve the integrity of your products and processes with durable and highly efficient solutions.
