Food security and the sustainability of our food supply chains are global major challenges and are clearly highlighted in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Climate change, political and social changes around the world and new diet trends are some of the changing forces we are currently experiencing that put more pressure on our food system. How can we transform our food system to make it more resilient and sustainable while at the same time ensuring the supply of safe and nutritious food for everyone?
