As RAJIV SHAH – president of the Rockefeller Foundation – expressed, solutions for sustainable food production are at hand: “A new revolution in food has the potential to create healthy food systems that sustain our families and our planet. We have the tools and technology to create innovations that could expand dignity and justice to vulnerable populations. To this end, we must continue to build the shared capacity of businesses and philanthropies, faith institutions and state and local governments to come together to try to solve the worlds toughest problems.”
