The global food system is at a rupture point. From macro issues such as climate change to local issues such as food security, the food system needs to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of people and planet. While plant-based burgers, nuggets and milk can potentially remove some industrial factory farmed animals from the equation, there remains a bigger issue around food security (availability and cost).
This is a question swirling in the food system over the past few weeks based on some high-profile headlines. At MISTA, we believe this is just an iterative step in the evolution of the food system and that the movement is in its infancy.
