Connecting the supply chain gaps
while advancing small-holder farmers
Switch To Green is a private sector-led initiative spearheaded by MILS.
By 2030, plant-based meat industry alone will require 10X (900 %) the projected global supply of enriched form of pea protein and 34% of pea production overall, assuming current yields. (Plant-based Meat, Anticipating 2030 Production Requirement, The Good Food Institute, 2021) The biggest bottlenecks are the processing facilities.
At the same time, millions of small-holder farmers in developing countries such as Myanmar, the second largest exporter and the third largest producer of pulses in the world, are facing limited market access and suffering price fluctuations to low-price markets.
Switch To Green is a market-driven initiative led by MILS to connect the supply chain gaps in sustainable plant-based food systems while improving the lives of millions of small-holder farmers.
Switch-To-Green (STG) Goals are development goals the initiative intends to achieve by 2030.
