How will the world sustainably produce enough healthy food to feed 10 billion people by 2050?

Animal-based protein diets and ultra-processed foods are not healthy or sustainable choices. 

A large part of the human population is undernourished or food-insecure.  Globally, the farmland is available, but the majority is used to produce feed for animals, not food for people.

Deforestation, climate change, and the decline of environmental health due to the impact of animal-centric agriculture will continue unless we take action.  

We believe the solution is a whole-food, plant-based diet using organic soybeans, soy products such as tofu, and traditionally fermented soy products such as tempeh, miso, and natto, as an important protein source.

The Soybean Solution is a two-part project: a film documentary and a start-up soy company, SoyDélices, in Benin, Africa

The Soybean Solution film documentary, directed by Sheri-Lynn DeMaris (Spirit of Rice), explores the positive global impact of growing non-GMO, organic soybeans and utilizing soy-based foods, such as tofu, tempeh, and miso, in our diets. 

The Soybean Solution will be filmed with Netflix-approved equipment, submitted to top-tier film festivals to build positive reviews, and accessible via streaming platforms.  Donations to the film will support production costs, including interviews of respected scientific researchers, doctors, food advocates, farmers, entrepreneurs, and chefs, at universities, hospitals, farms, and factories in Japan, the U.S.A., and Africa.

Along with the film, MGI is bringing The Soybean Solution to life by supporting and overseeing a new soy company in Benin, Africa, run by trusted MGI collaborators.  Money raised will be used toward the set-up and initial production phases of the soy company, which is anticipated to be independently viable within two years.
