Alternative Proteins

Owen joined FAIRR in 2023 as an intern within the Biodiversity team. Following this, he transitioned into a permanent role working on Food Technology & Alternative Protein. His work focusses on developing FAIRR’s proprietary research and data on alternative protein start-ups to drive better engagement and investor outcomes in the food and agriculture sector. 

Working at FAIRR 

Owen’s core responsibilities include support on both company- and industry-level research as well as establishing relationships with alternative protein companies, all with an emphasis on ESG outcomes and financial impacts. His quantitative and qualitative analysis of policies, regulations, company activities, investments, and technological developments supports FAIRR’s resources for investors and established food companies on the alternative protein sector.  

Previous examples of Owen’s work include producing a database informing FAIRR’s thematic report on regenerative agriculture and supporting the development of FAIRR’s collaborative Seafood Traceability engagement. Recent projects include the building out of databases addressing global novel food & alternative protein regulation, global sovereign investments into alternative proteins, and FAIRR & GFI’s alternative protein ESG assessment framework.  


Owen is passionate about sustainability and addressing environmental challenges. He has previously collaborated with a local council and stakeholders on the assessment of fishery sustainability, a National Trust expert on the development of a woodland management plan to support native species, and a local community organisation fund raising for common land.

Holding an MSc with Distinction in Sustainable Foods Systems alongside a 1st Class Degree in Environmental Science both from the University of Leeds, Owen has a recognised ESG skillset developed through the application of logical and data driven scientific methods to complex food system challenges.
