By 2050, the world’s population is expected to reach 9.7 billion, 34% higher than today, and nearly 2.1 billion will be people aged 60 years or over. Urbanization will also continue at an accelerated pace, and 70% of the world’s population is projected to be in urban environments.
Unfortunately, urbanization promotes eating habits of developed nations, one that is obsessed with protein. The average person in the U.S. consumes double the recommended daily amount (103 grams per day), of which two-thirds comes from animal sources.
This is the future of the world we live in today. We have imminent problems in food security and supply chain: an increasing population that demands more protein and an aging population that decreases agricultural productivity. Therefore, we need an agricultural revolution, and it needs your support.
