Transforming food systems to support healthy people and a healthy planet is fundamental to long-term sustainability, including mitigating climate and biodiversity catastrophes while equitably nourishing a growing global population. Coaxing and driving food systems in a more sustainable direction will require countless interventions– most often simultaneously. While all food system stakeholders have important roles to play in this transition, food and agriculture companies – those that touch nearly all the food produced and consumed in the world – are critical to growing and manufacturing foods that nourish people and regenerate the planet. They also must use the power of their brands and marketing prowess to encourage people to choose the most nutritious and sustainable options.
