The Mission

At AgFood Future™, we aim to tackle the one of the world’s biggest issues of balancing climate sustainability and resources with long-term food security by promoting agri-food innovation and diverse, sustainable protein sources.

We bring together government, industry, financial, and R&D institutions to address sustainable development challenges, disseminate best practices, achieve SDGs, and enhance China's engagement in the global agriculture and food low-carbon transformation.


Agri-food is the  missing piece to the low-carbon transformation. Until now, the focus has been primarily on energy, industrial manufacturing and transportation, yet 34% of GHGs are from the food supply chain.


Of the 34%, more than half come from industrial farming of animal protein – more than the entire transport sector! Protein innovation is, therefore, the critical strategy to lower emissions along the food supply chain.


AGF bridges a 400+ member ecosystem, educates consumer and cross-sector industry audiences, influences governance, guides industry development, and deploys breakthroughs to accelerate global food system transformation.

AGF Scope

AGF is strategically positioned for global impact. We work in the world’s most populous nation, which consumes the most meat, produces the most plant protein and has the highest market potential of any nation. Not only that, by focusing on protein innovation – which produces more emissions that any other segment of the food supply chain – we are helping to ensure a smooth, successful low-carbon transformation.

About AGF

AgFood Future is an initiative by: China’s only protein innovation association, and an established, international, public-private agri-food partnership.

Together, we are vibrant, 400+ member ecosystem uniquely positioned to accelerate the low-carbon transformation of the entire food supply chain.


We Enable Low Carbon Transformation by:

  1. Quantifying outcomes
  2. Certifying & reporting results
  3. Deploying new technology

Our AgFood Mix™ framework defines quantifiable, scientific indicators on three levels to link SDGs with agri-food and protein innovation.

It supports the low-carbon transformation of the agri-food supply chain by balancing developments in food security, economic growth, and climate goals.

23 Jun: AVPN’s Deep Dive Into Asia: The Critical Role of Agri-Food in Climate
Key to the transition to low carbon is investment and partnership. Investment in net zero is good for the bottom line, and according to Ms. Li, for innovations to make it past the “valley of death,” that is, the critical leap from R&D to commercialization/implementation, investors must engage with other stakeholders throughout the entire process.
