It’s well reported that going vegan is the single best thing you can do for the environment. But despite veganism being on the rise, livestock farming is still the leading reason for deforestation around the world and shockingly represents 18% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
The Good Food Institute are hell bent on making ‘cultivated meat’ (made from plants or cultivated from cells), the primary protein consumed worldwide. With animal-free meat, they’re adamant they can mitigate climate change, prevent environmental degradation, combat the rise of antibiotic resistance and ultimately feed more people with fewer resources.
Why we think they’re great
Plenty of food companies have jumped on board the plant-based bandwagon recognising its commercial viability. But within the private sector, profits are often put before ethics and as a result, plant-based doesn’t always mean more environmentally friendly. In contrast, The Good Food Institute is a not-for-profit truly dedicated to fighting the climate crisis. They make their research, data and insights open-access, meaning they’re accelerating the industry at a rate the private sector can’t.
