Alternative Animal Proteins

Will Animal Protein Still Be on the Menu in 2050?

The world population is projected to rise to 9 billion people in 2050. In order to be able to feed the world by then, food production will need to increase intensely. However, this intensification needs to be carefully balanced since environmental impacts are major. The livestock sector in particular is under scrutiny, since it is the world’s largest user of natural resources with 80% of all agricultural land accounts for grazing or animal feed production, and 8% for global water use. With the introduction of different future scenarios to fulfil future protein need such as alternative diets, insects as a protein source and stem cell grown meat, the livestock value chain has to get serious about its sustainability approach.

Value Proposition Design: Zero Waste Supermarket

Founders Sara Wolf and Milena Glimbovski of Original Unverpackt (OU) say there is a rising demand for products and services that deal with sustainability and that people demand alternatives to the “abundant” handling of resources. When the two started in 2014, their zero waste supermarket was financed with €100.000,- crowdfunding money that enabled them to open their first store in Berlin.
