Workshop 1B

Presented by Tetra Pak:
Transforming the Food Systems – the Role of Food Processing Technology and Packaging Solutions in the Net Zero Age.

The world’s food systems have delivered major human development benefits in recent decades, but the way we source and dispose food is ultimately pushing us beyond the Earth’s planetary boundaries – the limits within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive. 

We need a radical new approach to the way we feed the planet, from how we source and produce our food, to its transportation and the materials we use to package it, to achieve a global food transformation towards decarbonisation, healthier diets and sustainable food systems.

Beginning with a keynote speech from world leading climate scientist Professor Johan Rockström, which will frame the importance of developing food systems that allow humanity to operate within the safe operating space of planetary boundaries, Tetra Pak will convene a panel of senior leaders from across the food processing and packaging sector in a session moderated by Dan Esty, Hillhouse Professor at Yale University. 

The panel will seek to agree practical steps for how the sector can drive real progress towards a sustainable future and catalyse industry leadership to prioritise food systems decarbonisation.

The event will also be live streamed. You can tune in on the day here.
