Food We Eat
Everything we eat comes from nature. The global population, already over 7 billion, is growing by roughly 83 million people every year. And by 2030, about 1.4 billion people are expected to enter the global middle class. Feeding the planet while conserving the environment that underpins food production is one of the greatest challenges of our day.
Jobs and Prosperity
Agriculture and fisheries are big business. An estimated one in three of all global workers are employed in agricultural jobs, many of them small-scale farmers and fishermen who are vital to feeding the world. In Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, small farms produce up to 80% of the total food supply.
