Food and Sustainability: Building our Future
Published for the first time in 2012, Eating Planet illustrates Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition’s suggestions to win the sustainability challenge facing the global agribusiness system. It is a complex scenario characterised by three paradoxes – food waste, coexistence of malnutrition and obesity and distortion of resource use – that must be urgently addressed.
Written with the contributions of a panel of world-renowned experts – Pavan Sukhdev, Gianfranco Bologna, Barbara Buchner, Paolo De Castro, Danielle Nierenberg, Paul Roberts, Carlo Petrini, Riccardo Valentini, Hans R. Herren, Tony Allan, Ricardo Uauy, Sara Farnetti and Camillo Ricordi, Gabriele Riccardi, Marion Nestle, Aviva Must, Alexandre Kalache, Shimon Peres, Jamie Oliver, Ellen Gustafson, Michael Heasman, Vandana Shiva – of members of the BCFN Advisory Board and young researchers of the BCFN, Eating Planet illustrates the most recent developments in food and nutrition debate and research.
Moreover, this new edition of Eating Planet presents a series of initiatives that decision makers, business people and citizens alike should use in many fields with a vested interest, including action platforms of the Milan Protocol and the Youth Manifesto, elaborated by BCFN to implement Expo 2015 legacy.
