Nine billion people will be living on our planet in 2050. How can we feed this growing population without resulting in more deforestation and pollution? In the Silicon Valley laboratories, cutting-edge scientists are creating the animal proteins of tomorrow… without animals. Across the planet, we’re reevaluating how we produce our food. More sustainable means of production are tested. Algaes and insects are being introduced on the menu. And while society is reflecting upon tomorrow’s food, a controversial option is being brought up: creating super animals from transgenesis. So, what will we be eating tomorrow?

The digital component proposes to reflect on food by highlighting the balance between food, eating habits and their impact on the environment, in order to offer solutions for a better future for food and consequently, a healthier future. The “Interactive Grocery Cart” allows web users to find the healthiest food products that are also environmentally friendly. The animated capsules “Les 3 minutes Aliments-Terre” tackles subjects that are sometimes complex in a fun way using common language. The quiz “What Would You Choose” provides information on food production means and their impact on the environment. In the sections called “Future Foods” and “Planet Initiative”, we discover foods of the future and initiatives already in place about the future of food.
