• Future Food Utrecht

    Future Food Utrecht is one of  four hubs under the Utrecht University strategic theme Pathways to Sustainability.

    Future Food offers a platform for scientists and external stakeholders on which they contribute to the transition of the food chain for a sustainable world, by means of unique transdisciplinary research and education. The search is for catalysts of change; small interventions with big effects. Our ambition is to strive for diets that are both good for the planet as for all its inhabitants. Our research focuses on four complementary themes.


'Planetary Health: How we make our food system resilient, one seed at a time.'
