We are working to reduce the environmental impact of our food systems by exploring new ways of meeting the needs of the growing human population without destroying the ecosystems on which we depend for life. As the digital agricultural revolution continues, we are working to discover new ways to protect the planet while providing even safer food than ever before. We also pay attention to the consequences that new technologies and approaches to farming bring, especially to jobs and communities.
We are Transforming Food by investigating:
new food innovations, and their adoption
the human impact of disruptive technology
policies that unleash potential and protect people
