RESEARCH & INNOVATION

Thomas King

Thomas is the CEO of Food Frontier.

For the last decade, Thomas has driven food systems, environmental and poverty alleviation initiatives across five continents. He was named Young Australian of the Year VIC in 2015 and awarded a Myer Innovation Fellowship in 2019.

Realising the limitations of the current food system to sustainably feed our growing population into the future, Thomas founded Food Frontier. Through research, conversations and events, Food Frontier advises and connects businesses, innovators and policymakers, helping them navigate and participate in the emerging plant-based and cultivated meat sectors.

By supporting safe and sustainable solutions to the need for global protein diversification, Food Frontier helps future-proof our food system with alternatives that both meet evolving consumer demands and require fewer resources than industrially produced meat.


Thomas’s

Perspective

“Agriculture is the greatest source of emissions in Australia after the energy sector. Changing the way we produce and consume food – especially our protein supply – is critical to addressing the climate emergency.“
