Alongside transitioning our energy supply, transitioning to smart protein and away from animal-derived agriculture is the most important thing we can do to preserve our link with our heritage, and safeguard our future - put differently, to have our meat and our planet too. In the face of climate change brought on by excessive land, water, and energy use, a world scrambling for food security, and global health crises like antibiotic resistance and future pandemics, can we build back better? We’re here to discuss exactly that in Season 2.5 of Feeding 10 Billion.
In this introductory episode, GFI India Managing Director Varun Deshpande and GFI India Communication Associate Ayesha Marfatia sit down to discuss the incredible growth the smart protein sector has seen over the last 18 months, even during the depths of a pandemic. They also lay out what this fast-paced, mini-season 2.5 has to hold - with episodes featuring Indra Nooyi, Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh, Lisa Sweet, Bernhard Kowatsch, and Kate Kruger.
