So what?

The recent pandemic has placed a focus on the devastating impact zoonotic diseases can have, as they test the resilience of many things including the food chain. Dr Gerd Müller, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Germany, states that “COVID-19 will not be the last pandemic” and stresses the need to be better prepared next time.

Germany’s position as the first investor in Food Systems 2030 signals a shift in attitude towards our food system. Could this mean other countries also demonstrate a similar change in priorities? And will we see growing international efforts towards innovating and building a truly resilient food system of the future?
