The challenge as we see it
The human population has never increased so quickly. Today, we are 7.7 billion people on earth. By 2050, we will be 9 billion. We will need to produce more food in the next 50 years than in the past 10,000 ones, in particular, 70% more animal protein will be needed to satisfy the global demand. We therefore urgently need to find new sources of proteins that are more sustainable and environmentally friendly, for both human consumption and livestock feed. It is possible if we start acting now!
Increasing pressure on scarce resources
The current livestock system is responsible for the emission of 7 gigatonnes of CO2 each year, which amounts to 15% of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
70% of farmland is used for livestock farming, which is one of the main reasons for deforestation. Moreover, aquaculture requires large amounts of fish meal, which, in turn, is responsible for overfishing and the degradation of marine ecosystems.
