Sustainability is transforming the food industry, now more than ever. A growing number of stakeholders is working on technologies to provide a more sustainable way of producing food and feed. Whether insects, algae, or plants as a new resource for food and feed, whether developed through synthetic biology or other cell-based strategies – there is a broad spectrum of alternative solutions. What is needed now, is scaling up these technologies.
