Future food demand, especially meat and protein-rich products, is one of the most worrying aspects in view of population growth figures. In recent decades, the global consumption of animal protein has increased considerably. By 2050, the FAO forecasts a world population of 9 billion and a necessary meat production of 410 million kg per year.

In this sense, the search for new alternative sources of protein to animals and suitable for human consumption, animal consumption as well as to restore the quality of the soil will constitute one of the most relevant avenues of research in the future. These new sources of protein will come both from de novo proteins and from assessments of different by-products, giving a new use to materials that are not currently being used. Therefore, the solution to these great challenges must come from a renewable, sustainable source that is part of a zero waste strategy

It is estimated that by 2040, 60% of the meat we will consume will not be of animal origin.

The macro trends of population growth and global food demand, combined with greater sensitivities towards sustainability, animal welfare and health, will pose great challenges that will make us rethink what we eat and how we produce it. 

In this sense, from ACCION - Generalitat de Catalunya - we promote this session together with INNOVACC - the meat and alternative protein cluster, which aims to:

. Publicize these trends and the conclusions of the study: "Alternative protein as a driver of change in the food industry in Catalonia: mapping and analysis", prepared by the General Directorate of Industry of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

. The action plan promoted jointly by ACCION and the INNOVACC cluster

. Case studies of innovative Catalan companies with alternative protein

The practical cases are gathered in the program of activities under the theme ''The alternative protein to Catalonia"
