Food Overview

The world's population is expected to reach at least nine billion by 2050. Producing and distributing enough food to meet this growing demand while maintaining a diversity of productive ecosystems is no small feat. The Center is deeply engaged with the role that business has in reaching those goal—the immense opportunity for creative and innovative solutions to the challenge.
