Event description

The plant-based meat category has experienced strong growth over much of the past decade. As product availability and variety grow, the industry’s supply chains must keep pace to avoid shortages and improve accessibility and affordability. A new report from The Good Food Institute and Bright Green Partners aims to quantify existing global plant-based meat manufacturing capacity and to evaluate the potential for and trade-offs of retrofitting existing facilities to build additional capacity. 

Join us for a webinar on May 23rd for an overview of this new analysis, including recommendations to both the public and private sectors seeking to proactively and conscientiously expand global production capacity for plant-based meat products.
