On Monday, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) released the report “Thinking about the future of food safety – A foresight report”, which shows the factors that will shape the food safety of the future.
Variables include economic growth, consumer behaviour and consumption patterns, a growing world population and the climate crisis. In turn, the study develops the trends that will mark the food of the future, such as new food sources (jellyfish, for example), the circular economy, nanotechnology and microbiome science.
According to FAO, we are already seeing early signs that are decisive for our future, and technological advances are providing data that make it possible to make decisions in line with emerging opportunities and challenges. Through this study, the organisation seeks to reach out to policy makers, encouraging them to anticipate tomorrow’s problems and promoting a proactive and less reactive attitude.
