This paper explores the role alternative seafood may play in protecting and restoring biodiversity. That said, the alternative seafood sector is still in its infancy. Understanding whether and how plant-based and cultivated seafood can begin to address key environmental challenges—including biodiversity loss—will require a commitment of resources and expertise from a range of stakeholders such as scientists, economists, social scientists, funders, policy makers, food system experts, and conservation advocates.
In recent years, consumer demand for plant-based meat has often outpaced the industry’s supply chain capabilities. This scenario-based analysis outlines expected ingredient volume and manufacturing facility needs for the plant-based meat industry to identify and mitigate future production bottlenecks.
The plant-based meat category has experienced strong growth over the past decade and supply chains must keep pace to avoid shortages. This analysis by GFI and Bright Green Partners quantifies the existing global plant-based meat manufacturing landscape and evaluates pathways for expanding capacity to meet future demand.
The goal of this ex-ante life cycle assessment (LCA) was to provide an outlook of the environmental performance of commercial-scale CM production in 2030 and to compare this to conventional animal production in 2030, using recent and often primary data, combined with scenario analysis.
This analysis identifies commodity crop sidestreams well-positioned to become inputs for alternative protein production. It also provides recommendations to policymakers and food producers motivated to valorize crops and create circular bioeconomies.
This study aimed to establish a Food Safety Plan for a cultivated meat target product and contribute toward assessing the safety aspects of cultivated meat production by employing the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) approach. The information presented here may provide the basis for future food safety studies, indicating some steps toward ensuring the food safety of cell culture food products and assisting all stakeholders interested in assuring safe cultivated meat production.
