“There’s no question that the global food system is at a turning point”, writes Food Tank Co-Founder and President Danielle Nierenberg in her op-ed piece ‘Recipe for a better food system’ featured exclusively on CNHIndustrial.com. “Nearly one billion people go to bed hungry while another 1.5 billion are overweight or obese, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization.” Nierenberg’s Food Tank is a global non-profit organization that spotlights environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable ways of alleviating hunger, obesity, and poverty and creates networks of people, organizations, and content to push for food system change.
As a global leader in agricultural machinery, CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI), makes it a point to stay at the forefront on issues relating to food production, partnering with global authorities, such as Nierenberg and Food Tank, to best understand and determine its own course of action. This first installment of CNHIndustrial.com’s Top Stories sees Nierenberg discuss the ‘ingredients’ needed to improve our global food system, which she identifies as: the encouragement of businesses to become more environmentally and socially sustainable; investment in women; and increasing diversity.
An insightful read no matter your knowledge or background on the topic of food production, the article examines the positive steps that businesses are taking to go green, highlighting efforts by multinationals, including CNH Industrial. It also calls for a greater emphasis on the role of women in agriculture and shifting attention from starchy crops to boosting the mass harvesting of nutritious vegetables and grains in order to promote nutrition and public health while also protecting the environment and reducing poverty.
