Future Foods for a Sustainable Planet

Let’s create a sustainable food future together through collaboration and innovation among academia and industry!

QAAFI's Student Association (QSA) organised a webinar series to keep students connected while in isolation. Their aim, to create a sustainable food future together through collaboration and innovation among academia and industry.

Our food supply chain from farm to fork contributes to the environmental footprint of our planet, thus tackling its reduction has become a big challenge for the food industry. How to feed a growing population by 2050 sustainably and efficiently is a challenge and an opportunity at the same time. By combining knowledge of academia and industry the sustainable future of food can be secured.

The series has been recorded and is available to watch below.
