Sustainability of Food

  • Sustainability of Food involves producing and consuming food in ways that ensure long-term environmental, economic, and social well-being.
  • This includes practises that minimise waste and pollution, conserve water and soil resources, and protect biodiversity.
  • Using energy efficiently, reducing use of non-renewable resources, and limiting greenhouse gas emissions are critical.
  • Consumers can support such systems by making choices that minimise their environmental impact, such as buying local, seasonal, and organic produce, and reducing food waste.
  • Understanding the principles of sustainability in food can help us make choices that contribute to a healthier planet and future generations.
