Improving Sustainability Across the Food Value Chain with Biotechnology


Innovations in the food industry represent a significant opportunity to create real improvements in the sustainability of our society.  Some estimate that about 18 percent or a fifth of the human-produced greenhouse gas pollution comes just from animal agriculture alone.  Other impacts occur throughout the chain of food production, from farm to fork.

This webcast takes a life cycle perspective and look at biotechnology along the value chain that can deliver reductions in environmental impact.  Particular areas of focus include the use of agriculture techniques and technologies to increase yield and reduce farm inputs, innovations in animal feed that reduce nutrient run off, and improvements in bread fresh-keeping to reduce food waste and energy used in distribution.
