Our ambition is to protect and regenerate natural resources by going beyond our circular economy model. Furtermore we would like to investigate how AI is setting new standards for sustainable agriculture, with huge implications for the future of food production !!
We promote Conservation agriculture (CA) which comprises minimum soil disturbance, retention of crop residues and crop diversification.
We believe this is the right approach for making farming systems more resilient to climatic changes as well as mitigating climate change through soil carbon sequestration. Breeding crops to resist biotic and abiotic stresses will be an essential tool in managing climate change impacts.
We are socially responsible and support regenerative local farming.
A transparent supply chain is key to making informed decisions about our food. This is why we work so closely with farmers and make it easy for customers to know exactly where their food comes from.
Knowing that our farmers use natural, regenerative systems and farm in a way that increases biodiversity means the food you buy from us has a positive impact on the climate and the environment.
We try to encourages social change. We don't just want to stock shelves with sustainable (and tasty) options. We want to change the way people think about food—consuming it, buying it, making it—we want everyone to question the whole food industry and how we got here. We want to encourage people to find everyday solutions that consider the planet, the people who live here, and what we're leaving for future generations.
The food system is responsible for almost a third of greenhouse gas emissions, with connected challenges such as food waste, resource depletion and energy consumption. To reach net zero and mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis, we must scale a systems approach to change that enables the transition to sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices, creates new markets and opportunities for food waste and loss reduction, and empowers all stakeholders to play an active role in the circular food economy. .
Organic farming methods are known to be more environmentally friendly. They promote soil health, reduce water pollution, and conserve biodiversity.
Organic foods are cultivated without the use of synthetic pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), or artificial additives. This emphasis on natural and sustainable practices has resonated with a broad customer base.
As the world becomes increasingly conscious of health, sustainability, and the environment, the organic food industry has experienced remarkable growth.
With consumers seeking healthier and environmentally friendly alternatives, investing in organic food presents an opportunity that aligns with both ethical and financial goals.
The Sustainable Food Institute is an on-line, open education resource to transform our food systems. We work with Academic institutions, Government Agencies and private companies to protect and regenerate natural resources by going beyond our circular economy model.
Several studies in adults found a strong scientific concordance between consumption of ultra-processed foods and a higher risk of developing cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Evidence is accumulating from mechanistic studies of the plausible causal pathways by which the physical structure and chemical compositions of these foods might cause harm.
Additives or cocktail of additives could play a role in the incidence of NCDs and further R&I are needed. It is now widely accepted that a diet rich in plant-based food, such as fruits, vegetables, wholegrain cereals, legumes and nuts, may reduce the incidence of chronic diseases and is also beneficial against obesity and metabolic diseases
We want to enhance a comprehensive understanding of the importance of a robust environmental monitoring program. with proper sampling techniques,, target organisms and methods. Finally, our courses cover the responses to testing data, e.g., implementing corrective actions, documentation and data management. We partner with great companies like the Puglia Chef Academy, Green Italy Tours, Italy Experiences, Green Ukraine, Pasta Volare, Soul Food & Riverside.
