Considering the present challenging times, health is the utmost priority to fight against the COVID-19 situation, physically as well as mentally."

Commenting on the podcast, Varun Deshpande, Managing Director of GFI India, said, “Feeding a growing world cannot come at the cost of global health, worsening greenhouse gas emissions, excessive land, water and resource use, zoonotic diseases, antibiotic resistance, and needless suffering - and reinventing protein is a key piece of the equation. The Covid-19 pandemic has made the importance of protein diversification all the more evident. If you want to be part of the future of food and learn about solutions to some of the biggest problems of our time, tune in to Season 2 of Feeding 10 Billion.”
