Sustainable Agricultural Innovation & Food
SAIFood, making information digestible. Because research isn’t written for the kitchen table, SAIFood breaks down whats happening within agricultural policy and research, agri-food innovation, regulation and sustainability through weekly blogs. Our goal at SAIFood is to keep you up to date and curious to know more about sustainable agriculture, innovations and your food.
One of the society’s greatest pressures is to find solutions to feeding the global population which is estimated to grow to 9 billion by 2050. To do so science has taken great endeavours offering agricultural innovations and sustainable research. While this research may be the future solution to a sustainable safe food supply, often such research gains negative attention. As researchers, we do not write for the consumer, but often for peers and journals. At SAIFood, our goal is to help our readers digest the facts behind such research so they can be informed about the food they eat and the policies which regulate them. Together as an informed society, we can promote sustainability.
