People have different ideas about what the future of food will look like, but everyone can agree on what it should deliver: a food system that can feed everyone, every day, everywhere.
The world needs a sustainable food system that will feed a projected 9 billion people by 2050 with nutritious food, provide livelihoods—and also help steward our natural resources.
To make this happen farmers, scientists, consumers, business leaders, food processors, nutritionists, distributors, policymakers and chefs must work together to build a system that feeds everyone and addresses the problems of malnutrition, obesity, hunger, extreme poverty and climate change.
What are the necessary ingredients for a food system that works for all?
Hear from a development banker, a renowned chef, an agricultural expert, a woman farmer, a culinary professional and others about the future of food, and how we can work together to feed the world.
