Quick Overview

Novel, Alternative And New  Foods - Analysis And Opportunities


Product Overview

This report covers the recent developments from innovative companies that have established novel protein based products or production techniques within the food and fibre agricultural sectors. The analysis focuses on the growth of new companies supplying animal-free meat and dairy products, but also touches on a number of other fibre and food ingredient business.

Over the last five or so years, novel foods and agri-food technology have become a hot trend in the investment industry.  This interest is based primarily around three related events:

  • Publication of a report in 2006, called Livestock's Long Shadow by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations - which highlighted the negative impacts of livestock on the environment.
  • Ongoing communication regarding the future size of the world's population - even school children can quote that there will be over 9 billion people living on the planet by 2050.
  • The food price spikes of 2007/2008 which resulted in changing attitudes to food supply and security amongst consumers and governments around the world.

The combination of these three events meant that for investors and technology entrepreneurs, the food industry was suddenly on the radar as the next big industry ripe for 'disruptive' innovation.

This report profiles 14 leading companies operating in the novel food space.
