Agriculture & Design
The environmental emergency, combined with the need to implement agricultural production to feed a growing population (estimated at 10 million people by 2050) has led to the improvement of agricultural practices.
Over the last 50 years, the sector has been radically transformed with mainly mechanical advances. Today, there is a considerable push towards more ethical and sustainable solutions. Organic production will become 10% of the total in 2030. Additionally, natural conservation systems and the use of seasonal and zero-kilometer foods are also growing.
Attention to animal welfare goes hand in hand with research to replace their proteins. One example is the protein-rich Mankai aquatic vegetable. In the EU, there is a trend towards reducing consumption of meat per capita and the simultaneous increase in foods rich in proteins as alternatives to meat.
