About this charity

The Good Food Institute (GFI) is a nonprofit think tank working to make the global food system better for the planet, people, and animals. 

Alongside scientists, businesses, and policymakers, GFI’s teams focus on making alternative proteins (plant-based and cultivated) delicious, affordable, and accessible. Powered by philanthropy, GFI is an international network of organizations advancing alternative proteins as an essential solution needed to meet the world’s climate, global health, food security, and biodiversity goals.

To maximize their impact and the effectiveness of their supporters’ contributions, GFI: 

  • Cultivates a strong scientific ecosystem — GFI’s science and technology teams map out the most neglected areas that will allow alternative proteins to compete on taste and price. They develop open-access research and resources, educate and connect the next generation of scientists and entrepreneurs, and fund research that benefits alternative protein development across the sector.
  • Influences policy and secure government funding — GFI’s policy teams ensure that alternative proteins are a part of the policy discussion around climate change mitigation and global health. They advocate for government funding and incentives to transition to alternative proteins and are paving the way for the approval of novel proteins such as cultivated meat. 
  • Ensures industry prioritizes alternative proteins — GFI’s corporate teams are creating a transformation of our global meat supply. They work to replicate past market transformations by showing companies of all sizes, from startups to multinational corporations, how alternatives to animal products can be profitable while meeting environmental, social, and governance goals.

GFI’s global community of scientists, policy experts, and corporate specialists are creating a world where alternative proteins are no longer alternative. In 2022, GFI earned top status as a high impact charity from Animal Charity Evaluators, Giving Green and Founders Pledge.
