Alternative proteins are here – the next 30 years could be crucial for NZ’s meat and dairy sectors

March 29, 2024
A new report led by Jon Manhire for the Protein Futures NZ, a project in the Our Land Our Water National Science Challenge has launched today. It models the impacts of #alternativeproteins on the #primarysector and regional land use in New Zealand in four scenarios out to 2050.

Essentially, the modelling found that the growth of the #alternativeprotein sector has an impact on sheep and dairy in New Zealand: dairy being particularly sensitive to developments in precision fermentation that produces direct substitutes for whey protein and casein.

Watch out for the full report – but read the synthesis in the article in the Conversation today.
