Redstone are agribusiness investors
Food production is a fundamental part of humanity's future.
How do we feed 9 billion people by 2050? As we pull billions of people out of absolute poverty and create a vast new middle class how do we give them the diet they expect? How do we give them the diet the need?
More pressingly, how do we feed 8.3 billion people nine years from now?
The calorie gap
A Big Mac index
A tasty hamburger has 563 calories. The world will be short 214 trillion calories every year by 2027. That means that the world will be short 379 billion tasty hamburgers by then. Every year.
That is more Big Macs than McDonald's (other tasty burgers are available) has ever produced. The world is not in a position to fill this gap.
