Let’s talk: Powering sustainable agri-food systems with plant-based products and solutions

Join Food Nation’s Global Food Talk online on November 30 from 2.15-3.45 pm CET. At the talk, you will meet leading high-level profiles from the Danish and international agricultural and food scene.

The world’s population is projected to reach 10 billion in 2050. One of our greatest challenges will be to feed everyone with safe, sustainable, and nutritious food that is produced, consumed, and recycled in a responsible way.

While there is not just one right path toward sustainable agri-food system transformation, the developments and innovations happening in the plant-based sector these days may be a game changer at a national, regional, and global level.

Dietary changes towards eating less meat and more vegetables, pulses, and whole grains can reduce the environmental impacts on the food system. The evidence compiled so far points to the health and environmental benefit of shifting to a more plant-based diet.

The main question for this talk is: How does the plant-based sector contribute to innovation, product development, and healthy, sustainable food systems?
