Voting with your fork: a healthy and sustainable food system for the Netherlands

Together we can achieve a healthy and sustainable food system that respects people, animals and the earth. Researchers of Wageningen University & Research are cooperating with farmers and environmental organisations to provide a glimpse of what the Dutch food system could look like in 2050. In this system, farmers will only grow crops for human consumption, and livestock will only eat waste streams and grass. Citizens will also be actively involved, for example in ‘food councils’. Consumers can start on this path today by eating more locally produced and plant-based food. Are you already voting with your fork?
