An $8.8 trillion global food industry is on the cusp of monumental transformation

The world is headed towards challenges with regards to availability of food and climate impact. Current food system is very broken and won’t be able to support projected population growth, nor will we be able to meet climate change targets through it.

~80%

increase in crop production is required to meet the world’s food demand by 2050

2x

as much CO2 is emitted from the food industry today than the World’s transportation industry combined

1.6

planet Earths required
by 2050 to sustain today’s consumption

77%

of agricultural land is taken up by animal agriculture despite supplying 17% of humanity’s food

~50%

Share of conventional meat supply will drop by 2040

9.7

billion humans 9.7 by 2050

Themes Driving
the Revolution

  • As the food industry shifts from analog to digital, data science teams are playing a larger role in enhancing the global food system to feed a growing population while minimizing the impact on the environment
  • Digitization has the potential to reduce food waste by improving supply chain efficiency
  • Commodity providers recognise risk to their “control” market positions from sustainability trends
  • Emerging growth companies and incumbents are expanding and validating their platforms via M&A
  • Shifting consumer preference for alternative protein increases as alternative protein products reach cost parity
  • An increasing number of consumers are coming to the realisation regarding how their lifestyle choices and consumption have an impact on the planet
  • Synthetic biology, enabled by the genomics revolution and computational biology, is increasing the speed and
    predictability to “harness nature” and optimize biology for specific traits to discover, improve and create new products
