As #animalagricultureemissions account for around one-fifth of human-caused #climatechange, it is impossible to achieve the #ParisAgreement goals without shifting away from conventional animal agriculture.
The current global #climatechange policy ignores the massive role that #alternativeproteins, an industry developing sustainable protein solutions using plant-based, cell-based and fermentation-derived technologies, play in limiting the world temperature rise.
GlobalData Plc research finds that #venturecapital (#VC) #investments rose exponentially between 2017 to 2020. However, despite the record levels of investment pouring into the alternative protein industry, experts are of the opinion that there is still a huge public funding gap for alternative proteins.
#GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Is Alternative Protein The Next Big Thing For Your Sector?’, reveals that investors are eager to grab a spoonful of alternative protein startups that believe in the potential of technology to radically recreate the protein ecosystem.
Flavour innovation, anti-allergic variants, and edible packaging are some of the notable product innovations in the alternative protein space.
Here’s a look at GlobalData’s Technology Leaderboard matrix. Nestle SA is clearly the disruptive innovator with total patent filings of more than 1,600 as of 31 December 2020.
