Imagine a food system where the most affordable and delicious products are also good for our bodies and the planet. Together we are putting sustainable protein on the menu.

Here's how we do it.

Providing Strategic Support to Companies

We work with both start-ups and established companies to ensure marketplace success for products that are transforming the current system.

Fostering the Next Generation of Innovators

We connect food scientists, students, culinary experts, and entrepreneurs with academic and for-profit opportunities in this up and coming entrepreneurial sector.

Educating Institutions

We engage with grant-making institutions, corporations, and governmental bodies to build awareness about the tremendous potential of investments into the plant-based and cell-based foods sector as a component of their sustainability, climate change and public health initiatives.

Building Indigenous Sources of Protein

In India, we work through partnerships to help increase availability of plant-based protein sourced from indigenous crops, in ways that help promote sustainable agricultural practices, provide stable market access, support farmer incomes and create a strong localised supply base for Indian entrepreneurs.

"Impossible Foods, a fourth industrial revolution technology company, makes a plant based food that smells, tastes, looks like real meat… If only 20% of world population switches from eating real meat to alternative proteins it would free up 12% of total fresh water, free 400 million hectares of land and 960 megatonnes of CO2 emission."

Amitabh Kant
CEO of NITI Aayog

"I believe that in 30 years or so we will no longer need to kill any animals and that all meat will either be clean or plant-based, taste the same, and also be much healthier for everyone."
