Episode 1: India - the World is Watching

Find out about the production, import and consumption patterns of the world's largest importer of edible oils. What can India do to boost its domestic production of oilseeds and edible oils and can government policies reduce the country's dependence on other countries to meet its vegetable oil needs.


Episode 2: Cultured Fats - Meat the Future

Meat consumption is increasingly viewed as unsustainable for the planet and the plant-based foods sector has grown significantly in recent years.

Cultured or lab-grown fats could help convert carnivores to eating plant-based meat products by mimicking the richness and juiciness of animal fats, without the damaging environmental impact of animal farming.

In this podcast, OFI editor Serena Lim talks to David Brandes - the managing director and co-founder of Peace of Meat - about cultured fats, what they are, how they are produced, and the opportunities they provide to the plant-based meat sector.
