Based on extensive interviews with 150 experts from around the alternative protein ecosystem, The Good Food Institute (GFI) has identified the key bottlenecks that are restricting growth and scaling within each segment of the value chain. These grand challenges of alternative proteins — from analytics and testing limitations to needed intermediate processing and end-product manufacturing innovations — represent whitespace opportunities for startups, investors, and established suppliers. Solving these challenges would enable alternative proteins to attain sensory and price competitiveness with animal proteins while providing new business development opportunities for B2B suppliers.
