The Future
of the
Food System

Our food system today is dysfunctional, inequitable and unsustainable from the standpoints of its impacts on the environment, health and nutrition and in the way it treats animals. In the future, it must produce more, and better quality food with significantly less land, water, and substantially more sustainable use of inputs. It must also provide affordable, healthy and safe diets, and rely more on alternative sources of protein that are sustainable.

 

We are committed to creating a new food system by promoting a culture of food innovation driven especially by entrepreneurs, start-ups and larger companies leveraging the most promising technologies. This is why we created the Future Food Platform: to accelerate the transformation of the current food system by promoting game changing innovations and helping them reach scale.
