Highlights of this month’s issue:

PLANT PROTEINS: There’s a green-goldrush going on for novel plant proteins as consumers seek out meat alternatives. We explore the huge leaps being made in developing a variety of new veg proteins that are set to give meat a run for its juices.

RICE IDEAS: Rice is, well, rice, you might say, but in Thailand it’s big news. Really big news. We went to Bangkok to find out how fresh ideas, state support and innovative hybrids are giving Thai rice a big boost. We also check out a massive rice-growing project initiated by Africa’s richest man.

THOUGHT FOR FOOD: South Africa’s food system is broken and we need bold new thinking to rescue SA from increasing hunger. Researcher Dr Tracy Ledger has mapped out the problem in a provocative new book and offers some radical proposals to fix it.

SPARE THE OIL: In our Packaging and Processing section we look at how smart new technologies are enabling manufacturers to produce fried products with much less oil and meet consumer demands for cleaner, lighter foods.
