About GFI Europe

The Good Food Institute Europe is an international NGO helping to build a more sustainable, secure and just food system by transforming meat production. 

We work with scientists, businesses and policymakers to advance plant-based and cultivated meat – making them delicious, affordable and accessible across Europe. 

By making meat from plants and cultivating it from cells, we can reduce the environmental impact of our food system, decrease the risk of zoonotic disease, and feed more people with fewer resources. GFI Europe is powered by philanthropy.

How we’re funded

The Good Food Institute is 100% powered by philanthropy. Our progress is only possible thanks to gifts and grants from our global family of donors.

The vast majority of our funding comes from individual donors, spanning 65+ countries, with additional support from philanthropic foundations including the Open Philanthropy Project and ClimateWorks Foundation.

We don’t accept donations from the food industry, but food companies can sponsor the Good Food Conference or support the GFI Research Grant Programme. We do not receive any government funding. 

People around the world support our work because, together, we can transform our food system to mitigate climate change and environmental degradation, feed our planet’s growing population, and secure a food supply that decreases the risk of zoonotic diseases and antibiotic resistance.

Our donors are making a difference to how soon the sustainable choice becomes the default option across Europe. Find out more about how you can contribute.
