The food systems that we live with today are not working in terms of their outcomes for
feeding large sections of humanity, for human nutrition and health systems, for ecosystems,
nor are they working economically or socially for many farmers and communities around the
world. Something better is possible but it will not be realized through piecemeal and
incremental improvements around the edges of an industrial age model to agriculture, what is
needed are structural changes; changes to the very foundations of how we produce, deliver
and consume food around the planet in the 21st century. We call this food systems innovation.
