The Food Revolution: Why What We Eat Matters

Agriculture, in particular, animal farming, is a major emitter of greenhouse gas and driver of deforestation. The way our food is produced needs to change, yet we are so used to what is served on our plates. This is why scientists and investors are coming up with innovative ways to recreate the same taste, texture and nutritional profiles of animal products, without harm to animals and the environment. In this panel, speakers will be sharing the latest products and investment trends in the sustainable meals, and what it means for our future diets.
