"This book is a highlight in multidisciplinary studies on innovative food production and consumption in an era of new scarcity and offers useful guiding principles for a transition towards an ecologically and socially sustainable food system from a global perspective. The authors/researchers ought to be complimented for their creative research results which deserve to be disseminated to a wide audience."
(Peter Nijkamp, President NWO)
"This book sets out the findings of the PROFETAS … research programme, which studied the options for more sustainable food production and consumption. … The book argues for a ‘protein transition’. … informed by a range of disciplines whose methodologies are integrated together into a coherent analysis, presents a powerful and reasoned case for both the ethical expedient worth of the protein transition. … is emphatic that a debate involving the public is needed on the introduction of NPFs."
