THE CHALLENGES WE ARE FACING
The current productive matrix has no future. Due to population growth, we are facing an increasing food demand, but with consumers who are deeply concerned about the way these foods are produced, and how they impact our environment. Unfortunately, this is not new since the global food system generates one-quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
People are demanding a healthier and environmentally sustainable food production system.
While other regions have already started to address this challenge, Latam has not made significant progress yet in that direction. Despite our region continues to be a key producer of animal protein (1st in beef production, 3rd in poultry meat production) and the raw materials used for their feeding (1st in soybean production, 3rd in corn production), it has not yet seriously developed the plant-based protein industry, the one that will have an important positive impact in our environment. These plant-based proteins will be the key ingredient for a healthier and more sustainable diet. Our main objective is to rebuild the Latam food matrix, from the farms to the final client, develop the plant-based proteins, and position our region as the main producer of this industry, among the actual ones.
