Alternative Protein Startups Receive Boost from Investor Coalition Worth $1.25tn – AgFunderNews

I find this encouraging, and worrying.  At a time when New Zealand’s political leaders are determined to continue to support polluting and energy intensive farming others are leading toward alternatives.  This is just one example of developments.

Encouraging, because a basket of sustainable food approaches gives us resilience; worrying, because here in New Zealand we are gambling that business will continue as usual.  Study history, it won’t.

A 40-strong investor coalition including Swedish state pension funds is putting pressure on the world’s largest food companies to diversify their protein offerings into more plant-based alternatives.
