Canada’s Role: Feeding the World while Saving the Planet
Due to a myriad of forces and global disruptions, food insecurity has expanded in recent years and currently impacts almost 10% of the world’s population. Feeding the world’s growing population is a significant undertaking and challenge, especially as we embrace the need to be excellent stewards of the environment and align increased production of digestible protein with lower emissions and maximized carbon sequestration.
Already one of the most sustainable producers of meat, milk and eggs globally, Canada must continue to improve its production efficiency resulting in even greater sustainability and increased, cost effective production in order to meet the growing need for food and more specifically, digestible protein around the world.
