New Collection – The future of food

By August 24, 2019 No Comments

Every week we take a deeper look at issues and stories changing your world. In our Collections, Mogul News gives you the tools you need to make up your own mind. Covering everything business, tech and politics, they bring together handpicked articles offering insight and analysis in one place.

This week we take a look at how technology is changing how and what we eat. Here’s a quick note from our editor about the Collection.

Half the world’s crops go to raising animals for their meat. That meat only provides 15% of the world’s calories. With one in ten suffering from hunger and the world population set to reach nearly 10bn by 2050, the way we feed people has to change.

Meat-heavy diets also have negative health consequences, contributing to cancer, obesity and diabetes. With the world not making, or distributing, enough food and too much of it being meat, the future looks grim.

From plant-based products that mimic the taste and texture of meat to genetically modifying crops to be hardier and give better yields, take a look at what the future of food might look like.

But those solutions each have their own problems, with the meat business pushing back against the likes of Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat. Gene editing does not have a good reputation with the public.

In this Collection explore the problems, solutions and pitfalls facing the world as it looks to feed itself in ‘The future of food’.
