The whole food ecosystem is facing challenges that keep it from meeting both sustainable and nutritional needs. These challenges can only be met if there is a proper understanding of how to deal with the dilemma between the qualitative and quantitative aspects of sustainability and nutrition. We also need to look beyond just the product and take into consideration people's eating habits and the choices they make when it comes to their daily consumption.
Registration deadline: 4 September 2023
