ATLANTA, January 22, 2024 - The Educated Choices Program (ECP) has announced a partnership with The Good Food Institute (GFI), a nonprofit think tank and international network of organizations working to accelerate alternative protein innovation. GFI and ECP share a vision of a global food system that is better for the planet and everyone on it.
This partnership will produce The Food Innovation Series, a collection of short educational videos that will discuss the technology behind cultivated meat, fermented alternative proteins, and plant-based proteins as well as career paths within each area of food technology mentioned. These videos will not only introduce students to these alternative proteins, but help them understand how they can be part of the new and improved food system of the future, helping to build the talented workforce needed for its success.
"We are so pleased to collaborate with GFI on this important series of educational materials. Our combined expertise in the fields of alternative proteins and education will lead to the creation of world-class academic resources designed to not only teach young people about the potential that food innovation has to positively impact human and planetary health but also to give them a clear understanding of the career opportunities that exist within the exciting field of food science." - Karyn Knox, Chief Development and Partnerships Officer, Educated Choices Program
