GFI India

The Good Food Institute India (GFI India) is a part of an international network of nonprofits spanning Brazil, Israel, U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific. Since our establishment in 2017, GFI India has rapidly emerged as the central thought leader and convening body in the space of plant-based, cultivated and fermentation-based meat, eggs, and dairy that are collectively known as the "alternative protein" or the "smart protein" sector, working with scientists, investors, entrepreneurs, and food corporations to reimagine the food system, where consumers have the option of choosing the most delicious and nutritious foods for their bodies and the planet, based on taste, price, and convenience. GFI India's expert teams dedicated to Science and Technology, Corporate Engagement and Policy have worked on ecosystem building activities like organizing national summits, formed partnerships with large food and ingredient companies, disseminated open access scientific information via white papers and webinars, and stimulated world-leading alternative protein research by engaging with universities and the government.
