The way we grow and produce food continues to negatively impact the current global food system. Its impact is far reaching as it contributes to malnutrition as well as low-quality diets that ultimately result in poor health outcomes.
Moreover, eating the same foods repeatedly is boring our palate and harming the planet. Mealtime monotony is a global issue as 75% of the global food supply comes from only 12 plant and five animal species. Just three (rice, maize, wheat) make up nearly 60% of plant-based calories despite there being up to 50,000 edible plants species. This not only bores our palates but excludes many valuable sources of nutrition while taking excessive amount of resource from the planet and harming the precious soil.
Knorr’s purpose is to reinvent food for humanity with the ambition to get food that is good for people and the planet on7 billion plates by 2025. To respond to these food system issues Knorr is focused on three shifts: more variety, more plant-based foods and sustainable, restorative, regenerative ways to of growing and producing food. This is the basis of Eat for Good and the meaning behind ‘good food’ with Future 50 Foods being the unlock to all three shifts.
