Proteins as a key role in nutrition
With a growing world population and, at the same time, ever scarcer resources, food security is one of the key challenges for our and future generations. Already today, it is our responsibility to create innovations that allow a sustainable and globally applicable nutrition concept for the future, allowing us to use our natural raw materials as efficiently and responsibly as possible.
When it comes to the worldwide supply of high-quality food, the availability of proteins plays a key role. Large parts of the world’s population do not have adequate access to nutritious, protein-rich food. By contrast, industrialised and emerging countries are already struggling with the health and environmental consequences of over-eating animal proteins and products. The high animal food consumption has negative impacts on ecosystems, the climate and, ultimately, on our planet’s biodiversity.
