Fireside Chat: A More Sustainable Food Supply Starts with Better Breeding

To nourish 10 billion people by 2050, we need real innovation to meet the demand while reducing the impact on our planet. Join a discussion which will begin to link key sustainability goals in the supply chain to practices taking place on farms of all sizes. This discussion will highlight an often-overlooked part of creating a sustainable food system – better animal breeding. Breeding technologies can help farmers raise healthier animals, resulting in high-quality proteins while eradicating animal diseases. Innovative and sustainable animal breeding can also reduce stress on resources, reduce waste and even reduce GHG emissions
