on Tue, 10/11/2016 - 10:08

A group of investors worth $1.25 trillion in assets are urging 16 food companies to accelerate the switch to sustainable, plant-based proteins.
The 40 institutional investors are part of the FAIRR Initiative, which aims to raise awareness of the material risks posed by industrial animal production on investment portfolios. It has targeted 16 food companies, including Kraft Heinz, Nestlé, Unilever, Tesco, Walmart and General Mills, and is urging them to identify their plans to respond to this risk with a particular focus on diversifying into plant-based sources of protein as a key strategy.
