Eat The Future aims to provoke debate about the imbalance of power in the food supply chain. The large corporations that control most of the world’s food production see food stuffs as mere commodities in the pursuit of profit. Thus, they are heavily invested in monoculture at the expense of biodiversity. This has serious implications for environmental degradation, sustainability and the very future of food production itself, not to mention the conditions of those who work in that sector. Biodiversity is fundamental to a sustainable future for food production. Eat The Future celebrates biodiversity and aims to provoke awareness of how we all sculpt the planet’s future through food selection.
