Something for everyone

Building and sustaining a better global food system requires a diversity of experts. We need everyone: biologists, farmers, geneticists, data analysts, economists, entrepreneurs, investors, donors, educators, policy-makers, manufacturers, and marketers, just to name a few. The range of professionals needed to transform the fast-growing, trillion-dollar global food system includes countless people not currently represented in this field. 

As a nonprofit organization focused on advancing alternative proteins, GFI works to strengthen and diversify the field by serving as a source of expertise and insights, a convener and catalyst for cross-sector solutions, and as an inclusive community for people at every point in their alt protein career.
