5th Better Food for Better Health 2016
Organiser: Fondation Mérieux
Venue: Conference Center les Pensières (Annecy)
Date: 6-8 April 2016
Food safety and nutrition are major global public health challenges. By 2050 the world’s population will reach nearly 9.2 billion, 34 % higher than today. In order to feed this larger, richer and more urban population, food production must increase by 70 %. This will require ecological intensification of production and a reduction in the current inequalities with regard to consumption: reduction of undernutrition in some regions, while cutting waste and excess food consumption in others. Food waste and loss, including loss from inadequate storage currently represents 30-50% of food production.
