The Alternative Protein challenge - market perspectives and predictions

Did you know that the meat industry is believed to create as much greenhouse gas emissions as all the world’s cars, trucks and airplanes combined [1]? Customers worldwide seem to be getting the message and shifting their interest - and shopping lists - towards the food of the future. Alternative protein options account for 1% of the total protein market but are predicted to reach $1.1 trillion by 2040 [2], or about 60% of the total meat market, making alternative proteins a ticking time bomb! Quoting McKinsey and Co: “the race for market share is on” [3].
