"What we know is that the world’s food systems will have to become much more productive to feed a projected global population of nearly 10 billion by 2050 while also reducing emissions and protecting the environment. For too long, we have kicked this problem down the road," he added. "If you Google 'feeding the population of 2050', you will find articles as far back as the early 2000s. This is not a recent concern. We have long-since known about this and now it's only 28 years' away and people appear to be waking up to the fact that there is a big problem on the horizon. But in the 2000s you didn't have the types of technologies that will play a role in ensuring we can feed the population of 2050 without further detriment to the planet. That is what this magazine showcases. Achieving universal food security is a staggering challenge, especially in a world with an expanding population, accelerating consumption, and obvious signals of a deteriorating global environment. Meeting that challenge demands a revolutionary change. But that change is definitely coming." - " FOFP Editor, Nick Bradley.
