Producing enough nutritious food
Global food production is huge. It delivers to humanity over 23 trillion calories (kcal) each and every day even when a third of the production goes to waste. But not everyone gets enough nutrition from this six-continent food supply chain and few are aware of the complexity and vulnerability.
