Internships – The Good Food Institute India (GFI India)

The Good Food Institute India (GFI India) is at the forefront of the movement to use food technology and markets to solve some of the world’s biggest problems relating to climate change, global hunger, antibiotic resistance, and future pandemics by working to build the smart protein sector from the ground up. We’re creating a transformative industry similar to renewable energy, and we’re doing it fast. Your work will be critical to the fight of our lifetime – stewarding public and planetary health.

How You Will Make a Difference 

It’s a critical time for smart protein in India and globally. We’ve seen several exciting announcements and a promising beginning, with GFI India at the center of these developments, but plenty of work remains to build a truly thriving industry and achieve our public and planetary health goals. As a mission-focused organization, GFI India builds the smart protein sector across business, science, and policy, and as the Corporate Engagement Intern, you will play a key role across multiple projects by supporting our landscape and market research efforts to generate insights on the smart protein sector in India. 

This includes data collection, primary and secondary research, and generation of insights by analyzing the data to help smart protein stakeholders take informed decisions, improve the efficiency of our internal processes, set up a mechanism for the maintenance of databases, and build a knowledge management system. The right candidate for this role is someone with a keen eye for data management, analytical skills, communication skills, and a good ability to manage projects — both individually and via a network of collaborators. The analytical work for this internship spans three main projects, with additional activities that may arise.
