"The UK has always been and is a great pioneering nation. The current food tech revolution provides the UK with an opportunity to be a global leader in the future of food. It also offers British farmers better growth opportunities than factory farming, particularly in supplying key ingredients to some of the biggest alternative protein brands not just in the UK, but globally. With the right support, the alternative proteins industry will create thousands of jobs, provide a better route to hitting Net Zero, boost British farming and help ensure supermarket shelves never go empty again - it's in our hands!"
