THE CHALLENGE

NATURAL

There must be better ways of moving towards sustainable, natural ingredients - cheaper and better organic food colorants and flavors; protein powders and flours with less environmental impact and nutrition for sports and wellbeing that is truly natural?

STRUGGLE

Why are we struggling to make urban and vertical agriculture a viable alternative to feed the billions of people living in our cities? Why are our options so limited when it comes to saving energy and improving yields and quality of our crops?

TRANSFORM

What is going to transform cellular agriculture (cell-based meat, fish, chicken and plants) into a key component of the food chain that it should be? What will it take to move cellular agriculture from early-stage innovation into a sustainable, huge food source?
