Helping to build a better food system

  • Poor diets are today the leading global cause of disease, disability and premature death. Evidence seem to indicate that significant underconsumption of foods such as fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts, legumes, whole grain and fish is the core issue. The U.S. spent $327B in 2017 alone to treat just one disease, diabetes. Our food system is driving our health system bankrupt.
  • The food system is responsible for 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions, 70% of all freshwater use, and 40–50% of total land use (food production). Animal agriculture is about two-thirds of the entire environmental footprint. While new technologies are being deployed which are reducing food system environmental impacts, the world’s population is also growing towards 9.7B by 2050, and global diets are generally shifting towards more animal-sourced foods (which are resource intensive to produce); demand for these foods is expected to rise with 70% by 2050.
