Obama is backing up
The keynote speaker at this year’s summit in Milan was former president of USA Barack Obama, who emphasized the importance of Food Innovation in regards to both the environment, health and world population growth.
“Our changing climate is already making it more difficult to produce food. We have already seen shrinking yields and spiking food prices that in some cases are leading to political instability” the president said in his remarks on the summit. He also pointed out that food production is in fact the second leading driver of greenhouse gas emissions. “The path to a sustainable food future will require unleashing the creative power of our scientists, entrepreneurs and engineers”, the president said.
