Future saviours

Thinking about the future health of the planet wasn’t top of mind for many, as the world battled a pandemic crisis... Which is why sustainability is even more pressing this year. That said, environmentally minded food tech advances often go hand in hand with looking after the body – e.g. eating less meat, sourcing fresh produce, or enjoying the nutritious plant life of the sea.

And ali of the novel production practices being driven forward target the dual goal of saving the planet and ensuring food security for its people. Public awareness is at an ali time high thanks to documentaries like Seaspiracy and government backing for many initiatives.

While plant-based burgers are well and truly mainstream, consumers are beginning to accept the idea of lab grown meat, hydroponic farms, and even microalgae – but the jury is still out on how sustainable some of these solutions are at present.

Luxury

Sustainability is increasingly becoming the norm within high-end fashion as well as exclusive design. Stella McCartney’s bag is made of Mylo – a leather alternative made using parts of fungus.

From the bees

These clever little buzzy creatures are so important to help our eco systems and many establishments are creating hives on their land to encourage bees. As well as honey, pollen is also added into cocktails or to sprinkle on top adding flavour and texture, ali with some health-giving properties.

Bee’s wax can also be melted into cocktails, to add a smooth texture to the drink. The sustainability connotations around bees mean that we are likely to see a lot more of bee pollen, hot honey and beeswax.
