Meat: the Future Time for a Protein Portfolio to Meet Tomorrow’s Demand

The provision of universally accessible, affordable, safe and sustainable protein in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (“21st-century protein”) is a pressing issue that cuts across systemic challenges, such as consumption, the environment, food security, health and trade issues. It also offers a great opportunity to harness innovations in technology and science that the World Economic Forum has termed the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

This short introductory paper has been produced for the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2018 in Davos-Klosters to stimulate and promote discussion on this topic, in particular through a session entitled, Tasting the Future of Food, on Tuesday 23 January, 12.30-13.45.
