Future Food for Climate Change (FF4CC) flies to the United States. The mission is focused on how technology can help the food chain to cause less harm to the climate and find new solutions for a sustainable future. From September 6 to September 18 FF4CC stops in San Francisco and New York for its official US kickoff.
The US mission, led by the Director of institutional relations and special partnerships FFI and Coordinator of the Future Food for Climate Change project Claudia Laricchia, includes a series of institutional meetings and public events to promote the impact of the application of technology in the food supply chain, on the climate and on the environment.
«First of all we must stop eating what is polluting and polluting by eating – explains Claudia Laricchia – The Planet can no longer stand the food system process including the growing, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing and consumption of food. The Future Food Institute is committed to keep promoting a healthy and sustainable relationship between man and food for the health of people and the earth. The agreement between Future Food Institute and The Climate Reality Europe, the European branch of the project born of Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States and Nobel Peace Prize for his environmental commitment, proves it».
The Future Food Climate Project US kickoff has two major moments. The first one is in San Francisco on September 13 as a side event outside the simultaneous Global Climate Action Summit.
The San Francisco FF4CC event promotes a panel discussion on the key role of clean and plant-based proteins at The Archery (470 Alabama Street). The conversation is organized by The Future Food Institute, KitchenTown and Institute for the Future‘s Food Futures Lab. Tickets are available on the eventbrite of the event HERE.
The discussion features entrepreneurs, industry experts, policy advocates and showcases local and international best practises such as Impossible Foods, creating a delicious plant-based meats and New Wave Foods, the first sustainable plant-based shrimp company. Stanford University is represented as well as the Institute for the Future and the NGO The Good Food Institute, currently researching on technological need within plant-based and clean meat innovation.
