The hospitality company Sodexo has launched a new menu comprised of a selection of sustainable plant-based recipes from the Future 50 Food list, which was developed by Knorr and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The list was developed as part of an effort to offer solutions to the problem of how a global population expected to reach 10 billion by 2050 will be fed.
The list includes often overlooked plant-based ingredients that are nutritious, inexpensive and have a low carbon footprint. The aim of the list is to encourage demand for a more diversified range of ingredients which they hope will encourage a shift away from monoculture farming.
Time will be taken to train Sodexo chefs on how to use these new ingredients and the recipes will gradually become available in the 5,000 outlets across four international markets that Sodexo caters to.
