According to the Good Food Institute, an organization that specializes in supporting the development of plant-based food products, Schmidt predicts we’re entering a “revolution of replacing livestock with plant proteins.” “[S]hifting from conventional meat to plant-based foods would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight climate change,” writes GFI’s Brian Kateman. Schmidt explained that focusing tech industry efforts on developing plant-based vegan meat could significantly reduce the cost of food production in developing nations. As the taste for animal products continues developing alongside the growth of these nations, the global environmental impact of animal production is only expected to rise. But, writes Kateman, “a switch to plant protein will remove the animal from the equation and allow harvesting of plants for direct human consumption.”
