This paper utilizes an applied general equilibrium model to investigate the impacts of increased consumption of novel protein foods (NPFs: plant protein-based GM food products) in the EU. The simulation indicates that the introduction of NPFs will substantially decrease the production and consumption of pigmeat in the EU. The model also suggests that this will result in improved quality of the environment. Interestingly, NPFs are an example of GM food products that are actually preferred for environmental quality reasons.
