Healthy food production

Focus area ‘Healthy food production’ covers the entire food supply chain: themes such as circular agriculture, soil, food waste reduction, protein transition, new food systems, chain development, revenue models and entrepreneurship in the primary sector, are all significant components. We’ll focus on every aspect while never losing sight of the entire food supply chain.
