Food that's nutritious. Food that's sustainable. Food that's fair.
Everyone, everywhere deserves access to good food. But for people to get their fair share, the world's food system needs to change.
Why would a successful food business like Unilever say that? Because we can see that the food system as it is today is simply unsustainable.
It should be giving everyone access to quality nutrition, with plenty of plant-based choices. It should be serving consumers, and producers, fairly. And it should be cutting waste, and promoting sustainable agriculture.
It isn't doing that – yet. But we want to lead the way.
Too unbalanced, too wasteful and too vulnerable
Already, around 2 billion people are overweight. Nearly a billion people go to bed hungry, while a third of all food produced is lost or wasted. Producing and consuming food is exhausting the earth’s resources and fuelling climate change.
At the same time, the Covid-19 pandemic is reminding us all of the importance of a resilient food supply chain.
Nothing less than a transformation is needed. As one of the biggest consumer goods companies in the world, with a large Foods & Refreshment portfolio, we want to make a huge impact through our scale and reach.
