Making of Tomorrow: Wellbeing from Food

In the years to come, corporate social and environmental responsibility will be taken for granted —especially when it comes to food. In order to feed a growing population, we need to be resource-efficient. Minimal processing, minimal waste, and healthy food will save on both costs and resources. New, high-value plant protein sources will promote sustainability while adding to the bottom line. Personalized solutions and services will strengthen the role of food in the manifesting of values, as well as in supporting wellness and vitality.
