All of our FoodShots represent long-term commitments to addressing systemic food systems opportunities. We continue to seek advances in science to fully realize protein's power to improve health outcomes, deliver proteins in a way that minimizes environmental damage and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and expands access to proteins by diversity and democratizing production and processing to meet local and regional needs.

FOODSHOT #2 PRECISION PROTEIN SYSTEM [x]

WHY PRECISION PROTEIN?
A PRECISION PROTEIN SYSTEM ACTIVATES SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, INVESTMENT AND INNOVATION TO DELIVER THE MAXIMUM BENEFITS TO HUMANS AND THE PLANET

In order to provide sufficient nutrition for 10 billion people while signicantly reducing emissions from agriculture production and land-use, we urgently need to innovate across protein sectors - including livestock, aquaculture/fisheries, agriculture proteins, and novel proteins (algae, fungi, bacteria, insects, etc.) - to produce high quality, affordable and sustainable nutrition for our health and the environment. There is no time, either for the health of people or the planet, to be imprecise with our approach to protein, a macronutrient that is the most resource-intensive and consequential to the environment and climate change.
The precision Protein FoodShot looks at proteins, peptides and amino acids systematically and with heightened rigor in order to build a protein system that is more precisely attuned to human and planetary health, better aligns global and regional supply and demand, increases accessibility, and decreases waste and environmental damage.

PRECISION PROTEIN SOLUTIONS

FoodShot Global winners will leverage advances in science to fully realize protein's power to improve health outcomes, deliver proteins in a way that minimizes environmental damage and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and expands access to proteins by diversifying and democratizing production and processing to meet local and regional needs.
INNOVATION PRIORITIES
BASED ON OUR INITIAL PRECISION PROTEIN CYCLE, WE'VE IDENTIFIED SEVERAL KEY GAPS THAT HAVE THE MAXIMUM POTENTIAL FOR GLOBAL IMPACT IN OUR DEEP DIVE.
PLANT-BASED
PROTEINS
Alternatives to monocrop systems that create healthy choices for consumers and economic opportunities for U.S. growers, while also reducing protein production's contribution to climate change
PRECISION
FERMENTATION
Strategies and technologies for sustainable scaling, and scientific advances that address specific amino acid deficiencies
CIRCULAR
ECONOMY
STRATEGIES
Leveraging circular economies and the entire food system to produce protein in a way that reduces waste and helps fight climate change.
AQUACULTURE
AND FISHERIES
Novel methods to reduce by-catch, plant-based alternatives to seafood, and new feedstocks for aquaculture operations (i.e. insects)
