The question is, as our food evolves, can we learn to evolve with it?

One of the greatest challenges that mankind now faces relates to feeding the planet: How are we going to provide food for the next generation in a manner that respects our finite natural resources?

We increasingly need food pioneers across the developing and developed world to tackle these challenges, those that use science to answer the big questions, focused on re-invigorating our food production, nutrition and distribution systems.

And when it comes to human hunger, the only acceptable number of people suffering globally is zero. Yet at the beginning of the 21st Century, despite all our breakthroughs in technology, it is still a real challenge and no part of the world is immune from food poverty.

The sustainability of our food system is under greater scrutiny, more than ever before. We waste too much food, while others don’t get enough healthy nutrition.

We look at how cleaning up our oceans and addressing overfishing can really help us feed the planet. Food fortification could also be more important in the years ahead, as could further innovations in urban farming as our cities grow. We also understand a lot more about how our food crops function.

Farmers and fishermen, scientists and technologists are increasingly hard at work coming up with new innovations to ensure that we all have enough food in the future.
