17.08.23 01:21 PM Comment(s) By Born Maverick

In a world grappling with climate change and resource limitations, the need for a sustainable food ecosystem has never been more urgent. Born Mavericks is on a mission to unravel the complexities of the food industry, armed with innovative solutions that promise a brighter future. Let's delve into the facts and figures that underscore the gravity of the situation and the potential for transformation.

1. The Global Food Challenge

By 2050, the world's population is projected to reach 9 billion, requiring a staggering increase in food production. However, resources are finite, putting immense pressure on the ecosystem.

2. Losses at Every Stage

A shocking 13.6% of food is lost annually along the supply chain, contributing to a cumulative 40% nutrient loss since 1970. These losses not only strain resources but also hinder efforts to combat malnutrition.

3. Greenhouse Gas Emissions

The food industry accounts for a significant 37% of greenhouse gas emissions. With 18 billion metric tonnes of CO2 emitted yearly, urgent action is needed to curb the environmental impact.

4. The Disproportionate Impact of Animal Agriculture

While meat and dairy provide just 18% of consumed calories, they utilize a staggering 83% of global farmland. These industries contribute a disproportionate 60% of agriculture's greenhouse gas emissions.

5. Threat to Ocean Ecosystems

Rising ocean temperatures and over fishing pose a serious threat to seafood catch, with a projected 40% decline by 2050. This not only affects biodiversity but also the livelihoods of communities dependent on the sea.

6. Navigating Food Security

To combat hunger, food production needs to increase by 56%. However, achieving this while maintaining sustainability and minimizing ecological impact poses significant challenges.

7. The Rise of Plant-Based Alternatives

The demand for plant-based alternatives is on the rise, driven by concerns for health and the environment. However, the adoption of these alternatives is still limited due to factors like taste, cost, and supply chain limitations.
