Recommendations for the future of food

Recommendations from the experts of the Future Trends Forum for the future of food and the food system.

The Future Trends Forum of the Bankinter Innovation Foundation is optimistic about the changes that will occur in the next decade in the world of food and how to face them from the perspective of triple sustainability (economic, social and environmental).

  • Reviewing the global food security strategy and goal implementation: The United Nations must coordinate with government agencies and enable contributions from other stakeholders, establishing the strategic goals for the food system.
  • All agents involved in the value chain collaborate in order to reduce waste and ensure the diversification of agriculture and more nutritious, affordable diets for everyone.
  • Develop a true accounting system of environmental costs globally for all publicly listed companies.
  • The ‘total cost of food’ idea is implemented; this means that food prices should include environmental and health costs.
  • Telco companies could offer digital transformation processes to local producers.
  • Promote innovation in all areas and for everyone involved in food systems, so that they can respond to the opportunities brought about by the great challenges, leveraged on technology.
  • Create an intergovernmental international foodtech fund to develop innovative food technologies that will impact food security.
  • National governments could ban organic waste to stop food waste in landfills. A transformational policy to reduce food waste.
