Human health & Food

By 2050, Earth’s population will reach 9.7 billion, intensifying the demand for meat products and exacerbating the environmental impact of current production practices. This escalating demand threatens global ecosystems through deforestation, biodiversity loss, water scarcity, and climate change.

The inhumane treatment of animals, coupled with escalating food safety concerns, underscores the urgency for innovative solutions. Efforts to address this crisis include the growing adoption of plant-based, cultivated, or blended approaches for meat alternatives like burgers and nuggets. However, more significant strides are necessary to develop structured, nutritious, affordable, and versatile alternatives for chicken and fish that can effectively rival traditional products in the market.
