|Summary To improve the world food situation and to correct a threatening short supply numerous measures and technologies are being developped, among them the production of microbial protein. To attain optimum conditions for production and distribution of Single-Cell-Protein (SCP), a knowledge of the market, the economical environment and their future development is necessary. Raw material costs have substantial impact on the economies of SCPproduction. Availability and cost of suitable petrochemical or biological feedstock have to be investigated and balanced against as well as compared to other possible utilizations e.g. ethanol production. Animal feed is a relatively non-problematic outlet for SCP. Marketing strategies are directed by the market potential which depends on demand and composition of mixed feed, under consideration of quality-price-conditions. This leads primarily to a price comparison versus sojmeal and fishmeal. Dominant factor within these considerations is the feed-industry according to its size and structure. Especially in countries with a specific protein deficit it seems reasonable to think of a direct application of SCP in human nutrition. Essential for the desired effect are, of course, possibilities of processing and distribution within the food-industry as well as acceptance of the product by the industry and likewise the consumers. This concerns prices as well as qualities. Particular habits in nutrition and the structure of the food supply system should, by any means, be carefully investigated already in the planning stage.
