On behalf of the Sustainability Community we would like to invite you for a series of three Sustainability for Breakfast sessions.
Globally, meat consumption is at the highest level it’s ever been. According to the UN, global meat production is projected to double by 2050. This poses major environmental threats including deforestation, biodiversity loss, natural resource depletion and increasing risk of zoonotic diseases.
This calls for a transition in our diets. With plant-based meat, cultivated meat, and fermentation, we can mitigate the environmental impact of our food system, decrease the risk of zoonotic disease, and ultimately feed more people with fewer resources.
Mirte Gosker, Acting Managing Director at The Good Food Institute APAC, will discuss how GFI is working to build a world where alternative proteins are no longer alternative and showcase how Singapore is leading the way as the first country that approved the sales of a cultivated meat product.
