2 billion people, around 1/3 of the developing world’s population, suffer from vitamin or mineral (micronutritien) deficiencies (source: FAO)

Now in its fourth year, theĀ Feeding the World summit will examine the implications of the increase in food demand and changing food patterns, as well as the measures that need to be taken to achieve food and nutrition security. From human factors such as SUPPLY CHAINS, NUTRITION and WESTERN FOOD WASTE, to geographical and environmental influences like CLIMATE CHANGE and WATER SUPPLY.

Expert speakers from across the globe will unpick this complex topic, seeking explanations and solutions in light of the fact that, according to the FAO, WE DO ACTUALLY PRODUCE ENOUGH TO FEED THE WORLD. Join the most respected names from agribusiness, policy, international agencies, science and the NGO community as they come together to debate the next steps and generate fresh solutions for critical food security challenges.
