23-25 Aug 2017 – World Food Summit 2017

The purpose of the global movement “Better Food for More People” and the annual World Food Summit 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark on August 23-25 is to unleash the full potential of gastronomy in order to create worldwide solid solutions that ensure better food for more people.

The urban population of the world has grown rapidly from 746 million in 1950 to 3.9 billion in 2014 and is expected to surpass 6 billion by 2045. The amount of information about food is huge and difficult to get right, 1 in 10 people in the world fall ill after eating contaminated food, more than 244 million people lived outside their country of origin and more than 40% of food waste in industrialized countries occurs at retail and consumer levels.

The need for strong solutions across the world is calling for action among the worlds politicians, decision makers, experts, professionals, chefs, scientist and CEO’s.

Better Food for More People and the annual World Food Summit in Copenhagen are framing that action to evolve and take place. Together with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals which involve all nations, the aim is to push forward the agenda on sustainable development within production and consumption of food and essentially healthy lives in the global society.

Focus will be on the following themes: Gastronomy as a tool; Prevention of Food Waste; Food Diversity; Safer Food; and Better Information.
