One of his first initiatives is co-organising the Forum on Alternative Proteins, scheduled for August 16th in Johor Bahru. This forum aims to bring together key industry players to explore innovative approaches to alternative protein sources and their potential impact on global food security and sustainability.
The partnership between Medhini Group and MABIC reinforces our shared commitment to drive advancements in biotechnology, with a focus on creating a positive impact on society and the environment. Together, we envision propelling Malaysia’s biotech industry to new heights and solidifying the nation’s position as a global leader in scientific progress.
