There is so much to address on Food Systems, we are just getting started. Please check back frequently as we publish content on web pages, the blog and social media.

 
 

Hotels & Restaurants

Companies who invest in innovative food-and-beverage programs, differentiate from their competitors and drive unique guest experiences.

 
 
 

Responsible sourcing and sustainable food policies

Farm-to-table is mainstream and customer interest in ingredients is only getting stronger. With pressures of environmental degradation and improving ones health, staying relevant on “good practices” and partnering with mindful suppliers benefits everyone.

Developing a Sustainable Food Policy is an ideal way for restaurants to audit current practices and discover opportunities to raise standards. A philosophy of food transparency helps guests to make judgements and choices about the quality of a restaurant, while empowering Chefs to work closer with their supply chain.

 
 

Elevated Food Systems Program

Accountability can be achieved with checklists and regular re-training. The true meaning of a successful business is one that improves the people and community.

Kanyini Collective guides hospitality managers to take leadership in their local food system. We help create happy customers by meeting their demands. Key elements of this program include:

  • Waste Education and Training: recycling, composting, water conservation

  • Ethical Purchasing: organic, fairtrade or equivalent, biodegradable products

  • Plantbased Food Vendors

  • Partnerships with biodynamic wines and regenerative farms

  • Unique F&B Events and Community Workshops

  • Marketing Messaging and Media Production

  • Custom Garden Design and Maintenance: soil, rooftop

 

Sustainable Food Systems

 

To achieve global food security, we must look at how the food is produced and consider social, economic and ecological impact.

 
 
 

Food, Nature, Tech and Man

It’s 2019 and we’re stepping into unprecedented conversations.

Though they sound like opposing concepts— local agriculture vs. lab-grown — when executed correctly, we advocate for both. We want to shine light on how they are working together towards mutual social, environmental and ethical goals.

A thriving ecosystem relies on transforming conventional food systems into regenerative ones.

It’s necessary to design a closed-looped system with specific intentional practices that are beyond sustainable. Regeneration draws carbon down into the ground, helping it to store nutrients, retain water, and produce healthier, tastier plants for us to eat.

Our current system — the system people talk about achieving— the most effective system

We’re equally excited for the advancements of biotechnology products that are supplying nutritious, affordable food while providing alternatives for people to eat more plants. Collaboration accelerates success.

Both local farming and cellular agriculture are helping to drive triple bottom lines.

 
 
 
 

technology is helping Agriculture to feed the world and regenerate our planet.

You might have heard of popular burgers by Beyond Meat or Impossible Foods. These plantbased proteins are non GMO, impact-driven, and delicious. Other emerging companies include JUST, Finless Foods and Memphis Meats.

The advantage of the tech-based companies means they’re positioned to be funded for quick scalability.

At CES 2019, Impossible Foods debuted the Impossible Burger 2.0. Here’s the Press Release

This article is to be continued where we’ll be discussing how regenerative agriculture and biotech can truly work together to balance our ecosystems, improve health, and take animals out of the food chain.

Earth-functional foods

“Earth-functional foods” are foods that provide benefits beyond health including lowering carbon footprints, alternatives to meat, and incorporating recycled and up-cycled ingredients.

This sector is being driven by changing consumer preferences: a rising demand for plant-based proteins and for sustainable CPG products (consumer packaged goods).

Interestingly, this innovation is being led by startups. Read more here.

A truly regenerative food system will close loops of energy, nutrients and most importantly meaning and culture. It reconnects people to the land and to farming.
