Here’s Why You Should Invest in the Vegan Market in 2019

Guest post from freelancer writer Gergana Mileva. Veganism’s surging popularity is now a global phenomenon. Big chains such as Marks & Spencer, Pret a Manger, and Pizza Hut are introducing a wide range of vegan options to their loyal patrons. Others are taking the plunge into veganism. Guinness, for example, decided to stop using fish bladders in their brewing process, after two and a half centuries of carrying out this practice.

The Modern Agriculture Foundation: “We Work Towards a New Food System.”

Everyone is talking about clean meat and plant-based meat alternatives. But before these topics become mainstream, we need people that build bridges between several sectors. This is exactly what ‘The Modern Agriculture Foundation’ is doing on a daily basis. The Non-Profit-Organization from Israel connects entrepreneurs and founders, politics, research institutes and investors to make the dream of clean and plant-based meat come true. We wanted to know more about this mission and interviewed Daniela Kurz (Marketing and Communications Director) about MAF.
