In the presence of climate change and unhealthy practices, how do we make our food system sustainable? Here are four paths to sustainable innovation.

The vision of a sustainable food system inspires many people in our society. The idea that we could provide nutritious food, maintain the environment, and support all populations equitably is a striking testament to our progressive thinking. Unfortunately, the current food systems pollute and deplete the environment while producing unhealthy food for exploited workers. It accelerates climate change and does nothing to help the people most vulnerable to its effects.

Luckily, the will to reform agribusiness-as-usual is growing. Sustainable innovations in method, tech, and policy could enhance our systems and provide both for the planet and people. This article will outline the four paradigm shifts that could pave the way to a sustainable global food system.
