Our passion for food is booming. We search to source local produce, share our meals on social media, travel for new tastes in gastronomy and buy more cookbooks than ever before. The world's food habits are changing. Healthy, sustainable eating has become a staple part of our daily diet.
But at the same time, food has become one of the greatest health hazards and threats to our planet.
