How to accelerate the transition to sustainable foods

Roger Lienhard of Blue Horizon

An exponentially growing population and changing food habits in Asia are pushing meat consumption to ever more unsustainable levels. Today, the CO2 emissions of animal agriculture have surpassed the negative impact of all global transportation vehicles combined.

Blue Horizon is at the forefront of efforts to shift society toward more sustainable solutions in food and agriculture by scaling animal-free food options. As an early investor in the future of food space, Roger has created a diverse portfolio of more than 30 game changing companies including Beyond Meat, Impossible Foods and Matthew Kenney Cuisine.
