Future of Food: Responsible Production
Connecting yield increase and sustainability
As the world grows to nearly 10 billion people in 2050, demand for food is expected to grow by more than 50 percent. Meanwhile, planetary boundaries are already under pressure, and the food and agriculture sector is a significant contributor. Scaling the current food system is therefore not an option. More effective and responsible production practices are needed.
Future of Food: responsible waste management
Building a food system that is zero-waste and circular by design
Tackling food waste provides an enormous opportunity to reduce the environmental impact of food production. Moreover, food waste reduction has the potential to create business value. There is a surprisingly wide array of practices to reduce or ‘upcycle’ waste. It is key to understand which combination of practices will create the most impact and business value. A host of recent innovations can help bring clarity as well as solutions.
No food to waste
Pretend for a second you’re in a supermarket. You’ve got your shopping list. You’re scanning the shelves for some yoghurt. Two options: a cheaper one expiring tomorrow, and a full-price one lasting until next week. Which do you choose?
