Thank you for your support and input on the Feeding the Next Billion Prize Design so far! Having mapped and discussed the key issues in the alternative meat space, we are now ready to start sketching out what this XPRIZE might look like.

In order to ensure that we set audacious but achievable goals for the teams that will compete in the prize competition, we need to establish metrics for existing (alternative) meat production. Please select Chicken or Fish Alternative to learn more.
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.
