The world population growth is a societal concern that is set to impact many industries. With a current population of 7.6 billion people, expected to rise to 8.6 billion by 2030, many are concerned with the economical and mostly environmental impacts of this significant growth. As the population gets richer, more are prone to consume processed foods, meat as well as dairy, which require a larger amount of resources and have a more important environmental footprint.
