02 aug Eat twice as much plant-based protein
In addition to a facilitating function for companies and organisations, Eiwitcampus Beers has the ambition to develop a fully-fledged Campus in the near future with an educational function where, in addition to working, people can also live. From that point of view, knowledge sharing is an important pillar; this is how we help each other move forward! This time with information on plant proteins from Wageningen World magazine.
Having farmers grow pulses rich in protein on a large scale and getting consumers to double the amount of plant-based protein they eat is feasible within six years. This conclusion was reached by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, WUR and various other partners in the plan for an Economically-Powered Protein Transition through Innovation in Chains (EPPIC). The consultancy Deloitte calculated that if implemented, the plan would generate 2.6 billion euros in economic activity. The plan has been submitted for financial support worth 96 million euros from the National Growth Fund.
Anyone interested in learning more about the protein transition can read the book Our Future Proteins, which came out in March. It contains diverse views on the future production and consumption of sustainable proteins. In this book, 100+ experts present their views on the transition to sustainable protein production and consumption. Their visions cover a wide range of transition directions, from radically rethinking protein production systems to a pragmatic approach balancing global and local supply chains. By allowing a diversity of (sometimes divergent) perspectives, the book provides a snapshot of a dynamic transition in progress.
