The global food system is under increasing strain as a result of the effects of climate change, changing diets, and increased demand for limited resources with a rising population. As these threats continues, consumers want to know where their food comes from and how it is produced. The importance of sustainability within the food industry cannot be ignored. Companies are working to reduce their carbon footprint at every stage of the food supply chain as well as adopting innovative and responsible farming practices & technologies to meet these challenges.
