To achieve global food security, we must look at how the food is produced and consider social, economic and ecological impact.
There is so much to address on Food Systems. Please check back often we organize and publish content that covers the many interconnected aspects of food systems.
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.
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.
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 with a mission for global food security.
technology is helping Agriculture to feed the world.
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.
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.
Regenerative agriculture involves techniques that can dramatically improve most farming and ranching operations. Most of them increase profits if applied correctly. And they are almost all guaranteed to regenerate land while drawing carbon down from the atmosphere.
Go to Regeneration International to view: videos, courses, books, podcasts, resources for teachers and more.
Here are 17 organizations promoting and teaching regenerative agriculture around the world.
“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.
