Investors must push Asia's protein producers to be cleaner and greener

Explosive demand for meat and milk has negative environmental effects

| China

Food companies are profiting from breakneck growth in global protein consumption -- up 40% since 2000, with more than half of this increase driven by Asia. China and India alone are set to consume 360 million tonnes of protein by 2025, up from 171 million tonnes in 2000.

This exploding demand has created blockbuster livestock producers and an industry whose value has increased from $192 billion to nearly $517 billion in the last 30 years.
