“Innovative Green Technologies in Agriculture and Food Production & Processing”

Over the past three decades, I have realised that our current industrial food system is broken. It is responsible for 75% of the ecological destruction of soil, water, biodiversity, and for 50% of the Green House Gases contributing to climate change.Instead of providing health and nourishment, it has become a major source of disease, including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and neurological problems. Both industrial food production and industrial food processing are putting a high burden on the planet’s health and human health. We need to shift to truly green technologies that rejuvenate the earth’s resources and improve people’s well-being. This is a shift from industrial production and processing of food to ecological production and processing, also referred to as artisanal processing. It is a shift from monocultures and uniformity to biodiversity, diversity of economies, and knowledge systems.
