I’m also aware that global food production is having a huge impact on the environment. There will be many more people on the planet by 2036, and—let’s face it—not enough food to go around if we continue consuming and wasting food the way we have been. And when you add over-farming, over-fishing and climate change to the mix, you have to wonder if many of today’s ingredients will even be available 25 years from now.
Because I like to stay positive, I believe the future of food could be good so long as governments, retailers and consumers work together to put more emphasis on food education for both kids and adults. If we put the hard work in now, we’ll be better equipped to face the future—whatever it looks like.
