GLOBAL CHALLENGE

Growing population. Depleting resources

In 1954, the global population was 2.5 billion. By 2050, that number will have more than quadrupled to more than 10 billion. The strain on resources will be further exacerbated by the adoption of Western middle class eating habits in emerging markets. The growth in industrial farming needed to feed this demand will quickly drain our scarce resources, threaten our global ecosystem and cause numerous health risks for both humans and animals.
