Alternative Proteins: Speaking to consumers

The global food system is recalibrating in the wake of many factors, one of which is the increasing demand for traditional proteins, driven in large part by low-or-middle-income emerging markets in the Global South (see Alternative Proteins: What’s the deal?). What this has led to is the rise of a new category ‘Alternative Proteins’ encompassing everything from re-engineered plant-based legumes to lab-grown meats. The mushrooming of new brands in this category have been centered in the Global North, with some markets even reaching close to saturation point (read this to find out what all the hype is about). The market share is expected to change as the case for alternative proteins in the Global South gains traction.

However, eventually, children reach an age where their friends become authorities on seemingly everything, and they start to listen more to their mates than their mum.

Nutrition in the Workplace is a Winning Solution During and Post-COVID-19

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) highlights the importance of good nutrition before, during and after an infection. While no foods or dietary supplements can prevent a COVID-19 infection, maintaining a nutritious diet is important to supporting a healthy immune system to fight infections. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) states that a well-balanced diet is critical to receive the essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein and anti-oxidants the body needs to be in good health and build a strong immune system to lower the risk of chronic illnesses and infectious diseases. Therefore, a nutritious diet is important for all age groups throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Five-step plan to prevent an impending nutrition famine during COVID-19 in India

India’s isolation measures in response to COVID-19 are having a far-reaching impact and is among one of the largest initiatives globally to impose strict limitations on its 1.3 billion citizens. People with pre-existing vulnerabilities, marginalized communities, pregnant and lactating women (PLW), daily wage earners, migrant workers, and the elderly have been the hardest hit as the protective measures disrupt the economy.
