Innovation Field: Protein transtition
Protein transition involves shifting towards more sustainable and alternative sources of protein. This is important for building a more sustainable and ethical food system that supports the health and wellbeing of people, animals, and planet. As populations continue to grow, protein transition can help to ensure that food systems are capable of meeting the nutritional needs of people in a way that is environmentally and socially sustainable.

Innovation Field: Food & Health
Traditional industrial food production systems often prioritise quantity over quality, which can lead to nutrient-poor foods that are high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats, contributing to non-communicable diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. By promoting healthier and more sustainable diets, food transition can improve public health outcomes.

Innovation Field: Circular Agrifood
Circular Agrifood is a process of producing food, where there is a closed-loop system that optimises the use of resources and reduces waste. It involves the idea of reducing waste and reusing or upcycling materials throughout the food production cycle. The approach focuses on sustainable agriculture, waste reduction, and circular economy principles in the production and consumption of food.
