Let’s Talk: The seafood sector’s contribution to healthier and more sustainable food systems

Join Food Nation’s Global Food Talk online on June 8 from 10.00 am (DK time), where you will meet leading high-level profiles from the fisheries, aquaculture and research industries. 

People around the world share a common need for safe, nutritious, and reliable food. With a world population expected to reach 10 billion people by 2050, we face a major challenge in providing safe and healthy sources of protein as part of a stable and sustainable food system that can supply current and future generations. 

The developments and innovations happening in the seafood sector these days may be an important driver towards a more sustainable food system. 

This Global Food Talk highlights where and how the fishing-, aquaculture- and processing sectors can be significant drivers towards securing a reliable and sustainable supply of seafood to consumers worldwide.
