Over the last few years, the discussion around the disastrous impact of our current food system on the environment has picked up steam. Global bodies such as the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Economic Forum (WEF) have broadcasted their views on this issue, while food and beverage giants have created roadmaps to meet their sustainability targets by planning to replace animal-derived products and ingredients with more plant-based products in the future.
To help generate more awareness around this pressing issue, a new feature documentary narrated and executive produced by Academy Award winning actress Kate Winslet is set to release this September.
