Many countries are trying to sort out how to ensure the future economic growth of their food systems while addressing climate change and responding to a litany of evolving consumer concerns. Such consumer issues include health, nutrition, food safety, sustainability, ethics, food security and reliability of supply. As well, one of the “biggest” global issues will be how to produce more without depleting natural capital.
