Seed.Feed.Food covers issues around food from the seed to the table, and everything in between. Here, we make the link between the headlines--agriculture, food security, climate change, development, and the EU's role in the world--and real life, like the farmers, scientists and other people who are making a difference to how we meet these challenges.
Seed.Feed.Food is a project of EuropaBio's Agricultural Biotechnology team.
But we also point out quirky news related to food and eating and try not to take ourselves too seriously :-) You are welcome to follow our Twitter account,@SeedFeedFood, too.
On Seed.Feed.Food, we believe that innovation & technology play and will continue to play a strong role in addressing the challenges of food shortages, climate change & farmer competitiveness. Contrary to what you might think, we don't believe that GM crops are the only answer. But we do think that they are part of the answer.
Seed.Feed.Food is a place where you can come to discuss & debate - in a respectful & civil manner :-) - the agricultural and societal challenges we're facing in Europe & globally. Fresh ideas are welcome.
As the UK Foresight Report on Food and Farming rightly points out, genetic modification is one among several tools and techniques that should be used to meet our needs for food. Right now, the world needs all the help it can get.
This site also includes the views of independent experts, like farmers, scientists & policymakers, as guest bloggers.
