Sustainable Food Platform
Why Sustainable Food Platform?
World population growth and rapid industrialization are putting considerable pressure on our planet resources. In 2050, food production must be increased by 60% for the population that moves to the cities to be fed sufficiently. As a result of threats and needs in Turkey, such as sustainability, climate change, bio-diversity, resource management, food security, access to food and nutrition habits, Sustainable Food Platform manifest has been published in 2015.
Sustainable Food Platform, by adopting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and 11th Development Plan, works to direct the development of a sustainable and inclusive model for the rapidly industrializing and globalizing food sector, in line with the principle of “sustainable food for a sustainable future”.
