Food production is projected to grow 70% by 2050, when the world population reaches 9.7 billion. Fish consumption alone will rise 58%. The agricultural expansion required to meet the world's hunger will increase deforestation and biodiversity loss, and accelerate climate change by increasing the release of carbon into the atmosphere.

To meet this global challenge, XPRIZE is designing a prize competition that will incentivize solutions which create white meat alternatives that replicate or outperform conventional meat in cost and access, environmental sustainability and animal welfare, nutrition and health, and taste and texture — ultimately leading to a future in which both people and the environment thrive.
