12/04/2019 MORE THAN HALF OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST FOOD COMPANIES ARE WORKING TO ADVANCE PLANT-BASED OPTIONS

A majority of the largest companies in the world are working to advance plant-based protein in the Western diet, according to new report "The Future of Food" compiled by nonprofit Forum for the Future. The report analyzed the business activities of 132 of the world's largest food companies to determine if they are working toward the Protein Challenge 2040—an international collaboration between NGOs and businesses to solve the dilemma of feeding the growing population while mitigating environmental damage caused by food production. Researchers found that 41 percent of meat and dairy producers (such as Smithfield, JBS, and Nestlé) are actively increasing the availability of plant-based protein either in their own product lines or through acquisitions and investments. The majority of food and ingredient manufacturers (79 percent), retailers (52 percent), and food service providers and restaurants (61 percent) are all adding plant-based meals to menus and portfolios, focusing on setting sales-based targets of plant-based foods, and making public commitments to expand their plant-based offerings.

12/02/2019 KID CHALLENGES TRUMP TO GO VEGAN FOR $1M DONATION TO VETERANS

The brazen 9-year-old from Melbourne, Fla., made the bold offer Sunday morning in a series of advertisements planted on billboards, television spots and print media. He wants to make a deal with Donald Trump: Go vegan for the month of January, and he'll donate $1 million dollars to veterans. "He's the president of our country, and pretty much everyone wants a healthy president," Evan, a vegan and animal-rights activist, told The Post. And if President Trump doesn't accept Evan's offer? That's a $1 million donation down the drain for veterans. Evan is confident Trump will be able to put his love for fast-food burgers aside for the cause. The cash won't be put up by Evan himself, but by the nonprofit he's representing called Million Dollar Vegan, which seeks to fight "climate change with diet change." The vegan advocacy group — which was behind a similar stunt earlier this year that challenged Pope Francis to try a plant-based diet for Lent — said they'll be ready to cash out within one hour if the president agrees on Twitter.
