Whether you work in agriculture or not, when it comes to food, we are all consumers. People everywhere want their food to be healthy, safe, affordable and grown in ways that respect local communities and our environment. Meeting these demands in the face of climate change, growing population and limited natural resources puts enormous pressure on the global food system.
