Food is a global language and a driver for global economic prosperity. As the primary form of cultural expression, it joins people, industries, and Countries.
But food is also a catalyst for change.
Food players are often pioneers responsible for more than just the bottom line. Their choices have tremendous impact on human health and world sustainability.
So how do we face the urgent challenge of protecting our planet while feeding humans in a way that is sustainable, equitable, and nourishing?
This is where we come in.

Nourishment | Experimenting with healthy and nutritious food, by preserving our culture and improving the food experience, strengthening biodiversity.
Eating Lifestyle | Experiencing new spaces and models of consumption.
