Earth: Mushrooms and the Future of Meat

Cambridge Associates

Livestock take up nearly 80% of global agricultural land yet produce only 20% of the world’s supply of calories—so how can we make feeding people more efficient?

In this season two premiere of Unseen Upside: Investments Beyond Their Returns, we visit an alternative protein company in Boulder, Colorado called Meati. There, we explore how a nutrient-rich fungi called mycelium is changing the game when it comes to protein consumption. It’s better for people and the planet—yet somehow doesn’t compromise on flavor.

We’ll learn about the future of nutritional ecosystems from Sam Kass (Acre Venture Partners); David Chang (Momofuku); Tyler Huggins (Meati); and Chavon Sutton (Cambridge Associates).
