What Future for our Food?

What Future for our Food?


P. Feillet

Edition 2014

In a deeply-changing world, the huge challenge of the 21stcentury is to guarantee sufficient quantities of good quality water and food for populations. Scientists, farmers and industrialists must win the innovation wager to meet this challenge. How will our food be produced, processed and marketed over the next decades. During this journey into the future, we shall explore environmentally-friendly, "sustainably productive" types of farming, the potential place for genetically modified organisms, the urgency in reducing foodstuff losses, recourse to micro-organisms and algae, even insects and the ever-improving sanitary quality of our food.
