Forces for Good

Dec 20 2022 • 33 mins

Sustainable food and agricultural systems are critical to human wellbeing and the health of our planet. Yet, environmental degradation, climate change, hunger, poverty, economic inequality, and the impacts of war all contribute to a complex of interconnected challenges that put our foodways in crisis. How can business be driven to make decisions that mitigate food waste and loss, fight hunger, and address the growing threats of climate change? In this episode we answer:

  • What aspects of business practices intersect with foodways? (I.e., supply chains, food waste, packaging, plant based vs animal products)
  • What are the positive climate impacts of business working toward sustainable foodways?
  • How can consumers discern which products are ethically and sustainably sourced?
