we need innovation in the way we produce, move and consume food


Imagine all the food mankind has produced over the past 8,000 years. Now consider that we need to produce that same amount again — but in just the next 40 years if we are to feed our growing and hungry world.
— Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever, and Daniel Servitje, CEO of Grupo Bimbo
One in every nine people on our planet go to bed hungry each night....

... hunger kills more people each year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
— FAO
Roughly 1/3rd of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally, which amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year
— FAO
...more than 1.4 billion adults overweight and more than 500 million obese...Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year as a result of being overweight or obese.
— World Health Organization
Every year food borne illnesses affect 580 million people leading directly to the deaths of 2 million people.
— World Health Organization
World food production needs to double in the next 35 years, with 50% less use of land and natural resources.
— Berry Marttin, Board Member of Rabobank
Arable land per person has halved since the 1960’s… Every 20 years the number of people depending on 1 farmer doubles.
— Rabobank
By 2030 over a third of the world population will be living in river basins that will have to cope with significant water stress, including many of the countries and regions that drive global economic growth.
— McKinsey & Company
Land degradation and conversion of cropland for non-food production could reduce the available cropland by 8–20% by 2050. Species infestations of pathogens, weeds and insects, combined with water scarcity, soil erosion and depletion as well as climate change may reduce current yields by at least an additional 5–25% by 2050.
— United Nations
