FoodNexus is organizing the first FoodNexus Visioning Summit to provide clear recommendations on how to act, departing from the question: “What are the most urgent problems facing the food industry in the next 10 years, and how can we best meet these challenges?”. The Summit takes place in Paris on May 29 and 30, 2018.
The food industry is facing huge challenges to feed billions of people while, climate change and land erosion are already making it more difficult to produce food. Also, where wide scale hunger affecting ca 800 million people prevents economic development, health related problems due to imbalanced diets (overeating, lack of micronutrients) lead to staggering health care costs.
Meeting such challenges efficiently requires to develop a clear vision – and to make sure decision makers act upon it together. This is why FoodNexus is organizing the first FoodNexus Visioning Summit to provide clear recommendations on how to act, departing from the question:
“What are the most urgent problems facing the food industry in the next 10 years, and how can we best meet these challenges?”
