Safe food now for a healthy tomorrow

In celebration of World Food Day 2021 – 16th October

World Food Day is an international day celebrated every year worldwide on 16 October to commemorate the date of the founding of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in 1945.

World Food Day aims to promote healthy diets and eradicate hunger issues by 2030 and is a great opportunity to get people thinking about food and how it can be sustainably sourced and responsibly distributed and consumed.

This year’s theme is Safe food now for a healthy tomorrow which stresses that production and consumption of safe food have “immediate and long-term benefits for people, the planet, and the economy.”

Working towards a sustainable agri-food system is so important in order to ensure:

- sufficient nutritious and safe foods are available at an affordable price to everyone

- we take active steps to eradicate hunger and malnutrition worldwide.

This would also mean less food is wasted and the food supply chain is more resilient to shocks such as extreme weather, pricing issues, pandemics, whilst at the same time not compromising the economic, social and environmental bases.

Whilst this may seem like an unrealistic goal, we can all play our part. This is why the Carenivor range of products - when it comes out in a few weeks - will be using sustainable meat and sustainable packaging. This means that we care about animal welfare, but we also want to be more environmentally friendly so there will be a focus on regenerative practices – which basically means that farm animals can be part of a positive environmental cycle.
