Here you will find an introduction to the topic of sustainable food. Interesting facts, tools and short instructions will guide you through this section.
Sustainable food consumption is becoming increasingly important. One reason for this is the constantly and rapidly growing demand for food in a world whose population is expected to grow to over 9 billion people by 2050. At the same time, food producers around the world often do not receive a fair share of the global food trade and in many cases work under poor conditions. Additional pressure comes from greenhouse gas emissions caused by food production, which play a crucial role in climate change. Furthermore, the health aspect of food is a major concern, especially in modern societies. Finally, rapid sociocultural change in many countries raises the issue of protecting food cultures and traditions.
