Future of Food
What we do?
Our mission: In 2050 the food system needs to offer food security to 10 billion people worldwide. Tasty, affordable, healthy and sustainable food, produced with respect for animals and our planet. It is a major challenge but one that is achievable if we join forces to shape the future of food together.
Our role is to guide parties from thoughts and ambitions into practice. As an independent organisation, we drive collective action with frontrunners across sectors and countries.
We provide access to the right people, financial resources, shared facilities and best practices. The result: viable businesses and new healthy sustainable sectors.
What is the food transition?
Food transition is the shift towards more sustainable food production and consumption practices. Food transition is essential for building a more sustainable and just food system that supports the health and wellbeing of people and the planet.
This involves transitioning towards more diversified and regenerative agriculture, promoting healthy and sustainable diets that are accessible and affordable for all.
The goal of food transition is to build a resilient food system that is capable of providing tasty, healthy and nutritious food to people while preserving the ecological and social systems that support it.
