The overall conclusion of this report by Dutch Rabobank is that the current global food system is on an unsustainable track, which poses a threat to long-term global food security. The global food system needs to be transformed in order to secure the long-term food supply.
The pathway is variable, might be radical and coordinated action at many levels by multiple partners is needed in order to establish the conditions required to move global growth of food supply towards a more sustainable track. This will require major changes in terms of regulations, markets, consumer preferences, pricing and measurement of profit and loss. Large investments are also needed to improve current agriculture, including down- and upstream activities, and secure the sustainability of the global food supply.
Driven by these fundamental changes, new markets and business opportunities will emerge.
