Our meatless future: How the $90B global meat market gets disrupted

  • CB Insights Research

By some estimates, 30% of the calories consumed globally by humans come from meat products, including beef, chicken, and pork. To meet demand, the meat industry has evolved into a complex global business that involves farms and feed lots, as well as meat middle-men, like processing and storage centers, transportation and logistics, slaughterhouses, and more.

Meanwhile, startups using technology to engineer meat in labs or manufacture it from plant-based products are rising in popularity. Meatless food products from beef-free burgers to pea-based shrimp threaten the future of the meat giants.

CB Insights dug into some of the major trends in the growing meatless industry, from startups to watch to key investors to future trends & challenges.
