Nestlé: towards the transition to a regenerative food system
Protecting and restoring the environment, improving the livelihoods of farmers and the well-being of agricultural communities: with these objectives, Nestlé is working globally on its plans to support and accelerate the transition to a regenerative food system. In collaboration with its partners, including the network of more than 500,000 farmers and 150,000 suppliers, the company will contribute to the advancement of regenerative practices in the food system. Nestlé will also launch new programs to help address the social and economic challenges of this transition.
The announcement comes at the United Nations Food Systems Summit in New York, as part of Nestlé's commitments to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The communication also follows the Group's recent report intergovernmental panel on climate change which shows that the climate crisis is intensifying. “We are aware that agriculture plays a vital role in improving soil health, restoring the water cycle and increasing long-term biodiversity”, said Paul Bulcke , Nestlé's chairman. "These results form the basis of sustainable food production and, fundamentally, also contribute to the achievement of our ambitious climate goals".CONTINUE READING ON: www.efanews.eu
