Protein Diversification

We are developing and adopting diversified protein-based solutions, which are healthy, sustainable, safe and affordable.

Shaping the future of protein consumption

Protein is an important part of a healthy human diet, but the overproduction of animal-based protein is damaging to the environment. If we’re going to feed our fast-growing global population, then we need to find sustainable ways of producing new, high quality, safe and healthy proteins, such as plant-based proteins, cultivated meat and insect protein. At EIT Food, our contribution includes supporting high impact agrifood startups working to create viable sustainable and healthy protein sources.
