VEGAN FOOD START-UPS IN INDIA

 INTRODUCTION:

India on the one hand faces great challenges in combating hunger and malnutrition. Animal meat is not an efficient source of protein, and it even causes environmental impact. It is not well treated, and their waste is dumped into the river and pollutes the water. Animal agriculture Industries contribute to Greenhouse gas emissions. Although 77 percent of animal agriculture takes place, only 17 % of humans take their supply because human eating habits are changed. It depends on the individual economy, diet pattern and other facts. vegan protein replaces the conventional animal-based protein. The mass production of animal flesh for consumption not only affects the environment but also affects human health. So, the food technology innovation and research are taking vegan based protein without changing their meat taste.
