The future of animal protein: feeding a hungry world


The task is simple…we must feed approximately 10 billion people on this planet by the year 2050, and do so with the same basic level of natural resources that available today. As it pertains to animal protein, we must be able to do this under mounting pressures of labor, arable land, and water scarcity. Additionally, we must do so under increased regulatory and societal scrutiny of the very technologies that have enabled past advancements in resource utilization, productivity, and environmental stewardship.
