FOOD

How to feed a growing world population is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today. This is not only a question of improvements in agriculture but also in processing, distribution and storage. Chemistry plays an indispensable role in fostering innovations and practices which can help to grant universal access to food, such as increasing agricultural productivity, helping food production systems to become more resilient to extreme climate conditions or preventing food spoilage.

The scope of the Food theme at the World Chemical Summit is the ways in which the chemical industry can provide solutions and should develop to help to:

Improve the productivity
of agriculture

Reduce food waste and spoiling

Improve security and efficiency
in the food value chain
