Earth’s population is on pace to increase to 10 billion in the coming decades, meaning humanity must fundamentally shift its paradigms of food production, rather than incrementally improve millenia-old systems.
As we deep dive into the future of food, it’s clear we can use first-principle thinking to decrease our carbon footprint, eliminate animals from our supply chain, and create products that promote human health.
Hear four scientist-entrepreneurs share how they’re using biology to build tomorrow’s food system with plant based foods, fungi protein, molecular design of wine and spirits, and clean meat.
- Protein demand is one of the biggest strain on food systems. Using biotech approaches we can meet this with less energy, land, and water usage.
- We have the ability to remove animal agriculture from our food systems.
- The reinvention of food is being led by startups which means the ability to create change is more accessible to entrepreneurs than ever before.
