Fixing the business of food

The Food Industry and the SDG Challenge

In collaboration with Santa Chiara LAB


The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition (BCFN Foundation), in partnership with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), The Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) and the Santa Chiara Lab—University of Siena (SCL), are joining forces to help the agro-food sector accelerate progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Given today's global food challenges, the food industry is increasingly responsible for sustainable production and the health and wellbeing of the consumers.

In our report, we highlight the need for improved systemic practices in the food industry. Together, we provide recommendations for corporate practices in the food sector through four overarching topics:

  • development of products that contribute to healthy and sustainable dietary patterns;
  • identification of sustainable ways to produce food;
  • innovation of sustainable global supply chains;
  • good corporate citizenship.
We aim to make our second-year recommendations available to the public and the industry at the occasion of the UN General Assembly session in 2020.
