Ever wondered how cultivated meat can help combat climate change? Or how hydroponics can revolutionize the way we look at food safety? This episode, we sit down with Niyati Gupta, the co-founder and CEO of Fork & Good, a startup pioneering new ways to address food safety and meet protein demands innovatively. Niyati takes us through her personal journey that brought her from Hong Kong to Harvard, from working with the Ministry of Agriculture in Nigeria to leading a vertical farming startup, ComCrop, in Singapore.
We're not just talking about farming and food safety though. We delve into the world of cultivated meat and its role in the battle against climate change. Niyati, with her experience in the agriculture sector and as the founder of Fork & Good, offers valuable insights into the challenges of food production. We also discuss the impact of African swine flu on the global hog herd and why innovation is so crucial in solving food security issues.
We’re grateful to have you with us, fighting the good fight with a cool beverage in hand.
