Sustainable and cruelty free food production has become a major focus worldwide for consumers and food producers. The food industry has seen big brands, scientists and entrepreneurs rise to the challenge of tackling how to feed a growing population in an ever-changing climate. Cultivated animal protein products are fast becoming a reality and are a viable tool in reducing emissions, producing more sustainable and cruelty free food.

Over the next few decades, cultivated meat and other alternative proteins are predicted to take significant market share from the $1.7 trillion conventional meat and seafood industry. This shift will mitigate agriculture-related deforestation, biodiversity loss, antibiotic resistance, zoonotic disease outbreaks, and industrialized animal slaughter.
