Urbanisation and population growth increase both food demand and quality. Growth of food quantity and quality is hindered by limited resources and climate change. Therefore, cooperative solutions are needed on sustainable agriculture to feed the world.
Our core focus is the development of agribusiness plans and Agroparks, development of sustainable agricultural innovations, and education on sustainable food production. Together with the clients we develop solutions for sustainable agriculture fitting to their needs. By working together with people from different disciplines and nationalities, a successful product and solution for all our clients is created.
The world’s population is continuously growing and this growth is not equal on all locations. People are moving to urban areas, resulting in bigger cities that changes food demand and quality. The total amount of food is needed increases to feed the growing population, also a higher quality and more variety is wanted. The diets are shifting from a carbohydrate rich diet to one with more vegetables and fruits, proteins, and dairy products. To produce sufficient food for the growing population, we are exploiting our natural resources and resulting in, among others, deforestation and increased greenhouse gas emissions. Exploiting our natural resources results in a negative impact on climate change. To limit the impact of food production, we need to produce more food using less resources (so called resource use efficiency).
Wageningen MFC is focused on providing agricultural solutions to produce high quality and sustainable food with high resource use efficiency around the globe.
