Why it is Important and What will Bold Impact Look Like

Quality Food and Nutrition has been one of the most fundamental areas of human activities.

7.5 billion people in the world need to be fed every day.  By 2030 that number is expected to grow to 8.5 billion according to the United Nations.1 And people are living longer meaning the expected food consumption of a human is increasing.

Food production and quality will need to increase substantially to feed this growing population.

According to the FAO report “How to Feed the World 2050”, food production will need to increase  70% by 2050 to keep up with the projected population growth.2

Yet keeping up with basic food production to solve hunger is not enough.  Nutritional needs are not being met in many parts of the world.

Bold Business Leaders in food and nutrition envision Bold Impact for the world.

A Bold Vision includes:

    • Adequate production to feed the world.
    • Efficient:  More production from the land and resources used in food production.
    • Sustainable
    • Nutritious
    • Technologically Effective
    • Cost Efficient

The Bold Impact for Food and Nutrition:  Smart, Nutritious, Healthy Food for all that is Cost Efficient and Sustainable

Many efforts are underway that we will follow.
