The transnational corporations (THREAD 1 ) & investors (THREAD 2 ) that are now pushing a #plantbased food system are forces that operate symbiotically within the bulwark of neoliberal capitalism.
The latter is constituted of such (overlapping) power centers as @TrilateralNA, @GroupofThirty, @CFR_org & @wef. These think tanks represent the strategic-planning & consensus-forming centers of the #plutocracy (aka, the 'transnational capitalist class').
We should not be surprised, or dismiss it as 'conspiracy', when the obvious appears to us: those players that are having the intention to modulate world markets are also keen on shaping the food system.
The interconnection of corporate executives & globalist bureaucrats facilitates the creation of policy frameworks favourable to a #GreatFoodTransformation, without which supply-&-demand mechanisms would be insufficient.

What is required is massive #PR.…
To do so, strategic leverage over global discourse is readily available via a few consolidated mass media giants, tightly connected to the power centres that matter.
Take @CFR_org: representing transnational industry & banking, & counting governmental & geopolitical top officials among its members, it's core mission is to strategically map out new directions for its members in a rapidly changing context of capitalist globalization.
Although CFR does not have a direct focus on the food chain, it is indirectly involved with the #GreatFoodTransformation through its closest allies (e.g., @BlackRock [see ], @WorldResources & @RockefellerFdn (more later), & the World Economic Forum @wef.
The @WEF, in turn, is a transnational organization of corporate, political, intellectual, & civil society leaders, with a 'Foundation Membership' limited to 1,000 of the foremost global corporations. It's interest in the food system is strong.…
WEF's buzzword communication has been described as an attempt to put 'progressive gloss on the neoliberal world of austerity, exploitation, dispossession, & destruction imposed by the globalized capitalist class on the people & ecologies of our planet'…
The @wef is very closely affiliated with @CFR_org (many of its corporate Strategic Partners are also corporate members of the CFR, many CFR members have had an important role within the WEF).

Davos is highly supportive of the #GreatFoodTransformation.…
EAT (the creator of the #PlanetaryHealthDiet) is even a self-declared "Davos for food" & its founder (G. Stordalen) was appointed as a Young Global Leader by the WEF in 2015.…
Question is: do we indeed need to see the #GreatFoodTransformation as the dietary arm of WEF's agenda for #TheGreatReset?

Stay tuned, more on this later...…

#SiliconValley & other large investors are attracted in support of a model that will activate supply chains, market speculations, & trade wars over what are expected to be the resources of the future.…
Financial #speculation has become key to overcome the stagnation tendencies of global markets. Global money management can be narrowed down to some 17 financial giants, collectively managing >$40 trillion in a self-invested network of interlocking capital.

Food producers look back at decades of successful marketing, no matter if "animal-" or "plant-" based. In contrast to the past, transnational food corporations are now actively supporting anti-livestock messages. WHY?…
In support of its near-vegetarian #GreatFoodTransformation, the EAT foundation has set up a formal partnership (FReSH) with the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (@WBCSD), an industry platform of which the President is also a member of EAT's advisory board.
Within FReSH, affiliated food multinationals have explicitly promoted a '#plantbased' transition, sometimes with strong anti-meat overtones.…
