Without a protein transition, global sustainability targets will be impossible to reach.


This book examines the transition to sustainable protein systems in the broadest possible context. Perspectives from social scientists are presented alongside perspectives from technologists. Academic contributors from across the globe explain the science behind the transition, while industry interviews highlight in-practice examples. Some viewpoints are shared, some divergent, some polarizing.


A picture emerges of a complex transition-in-progress, with many different individual motivations coalescing toward a shared goal. The wide range of proposed solutions need not be considered competitive. The future will include a range of options serving different geographies, needs, and preferences. It is only through pursuit of multiple pathways that the route to transition will be found.
