The Food & Drink Business Podcast Ep13: Innovation + Investment with Phil Morle and Nick Hazell

Innovation + investment: How venture capital is fuelling the reformation of what we eat and how we produce it. With Phil Morle, Main Sequence Ventures and Nick Hazell, v2food.

Food & Drink Business editor Kim Berry is joined by Phil Morle, partner at Main Sequence Ventures, and Nick Hazell, CEO of v2foods, to discuss venture capital partnerships in the alternative protein industry.

 

The episode begins by discussing industry opportunities for venture capital funds and the importance of capital being used to fund research and subsequent development. After revisiting the launch of v2foods, Phil and Nick identify the industrial and infrastructure opportunities in Australia along with the global market volume that can make the required investments feasible.

Phil then discusses the factors that must be brought together in order to realise the opportunities, after which Nick outlines v2foods' future directions. The episode wraps up with Phil showing how funding innovation in the alternative protein industry is similar to being a movie producer.
