Fixing the business of food

The Food Industry and the SDG Challenge

The event organized in cooperation with Permanent Mission of Italy UN - New York, was held on September 24, 2019 from 4.00 to 6.00 p.m. at Warwick Hotel in New York, on on the occasion of the Opening Session of the 74th General Assembly of the United Nations.

This year, the SDG Summit under the auspices of the General Assembly assessed the progress made so far in the adoption of Agenda 2030, providing guidance and guidelines to accelerate the implementation of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition Foundation (BCFN), the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI), and the Santa Chiara Lab - University of Siena (SCL), joined forces to accelerate progress towards the sustainable development of the agro-food sector.

Fixing the business of food

A report on sustainable business practices in the food sector was launched at this event, showcasing best practices and recommendations in four areas:

  • promoting and developing healthy and sustainable diets;
  • identifying sustainable ways to produce food;
  • developing sustainable food supply chains;
  • being a good corporate citizen.

We convened institutional representative, experts, academics, entrepreneurs and opinion leaders to raise awareness on the main challenges, opportunities and responsibilities for the food sector and identify effective sustainability pathways towards the achievement of the 2030 Agenda.
