Working to create a sustainable, healthy, just global food system

GFI Experts

GFI has a team of scientists, entrepreneurs, lawyers, and lobbyists, all of whom are laser focused on using markets and food technology to transform our food system away from factory farmed animal products and towards cultivated meat and plant-based alternatives.

Components

What comes to mind when you think of meat? Maybe it’s the sound of a steak sizzling, the mingling smells of roasting chicken and herbs, or perhaps a memory of eating a meal with loved ones. Whatever it is, it’s probably not captured very well by whatever this is:
Sun rays shining through water
590

Challenges

Current meat production is unsustainable and inefficient. It is a key driver of climate change, environmental degradation, and antibiotic-resistant disease. 

Yet, these facts have not sparked significant behavior change: People are eating more meat than ever in the United States and around the world.

590

Solutions

We can create meat from plants or cultivate it directly from cells more sustainably and efficiently. 

We will make more progress by changing the default choices than by trying to change every single person’s mind.
