Our food systems are at risk without intervention and support
Climate change, COVID, and conflict have upended food systems. But technology, properly applied, provides some answers. With more advanced on-farm equipment, regenerative management practices, and smarter fertilizers food systems will shift from being a source of carbon emission to a greenhouse gas sink. With vertical farming, we can invest in the systems that will allow local communities the ability to access fresh and healthy food year-round, anywhere on earth. With biological innovation, we can produce novel food ingredients out of crop residues that would otherwise go to waste. And if we invest in these tools, then agri-food can be an engine of economic growth and a key plank in Canada’s green economic transition.
