Farm Progress America, November 8, 2022

Max Armstrong reports on the work in Singapore to promote food security including the development of alternative proteins.

Max Armstrong recalls a past trip to Singapore which he notes is not only a very clean city, but is also very green. Yet the country has little land for raising crops and has become the first to approve use of protein grown out of thin air, essentially non-meat meat. Max explains that the country has become a global hot spot for the alternative protein industry. Singapore relies on imports for nearly 90% of its food with officials looking more closely at ways to provide food security.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
