The origin of the Food Sustainability Index

The Food Sustainability Index was developed in collaboration between the BCFN Foundation and the Economist Intelligence Unit, with one common objective: to promote knowledge on food sustainability.

The Food Sustainability Index is a global study on nutrition, sustainable agriculture and food waste which collects data from 25 countries and 16 cities across the world to highlight best practices and key areas for improvement in relation to food paradoxes and the main Sustainable Development Goals.

Phases of the Food Sustainability Index

The Food Sustainability Index was presented on December 1, 2016 at the seventh edition of the International Forum on Food and Nutrition in front of an international audience of experts and stakeholders.

This is when it started to become well known. On December 7, 2016, the Food Sustainability Index was presented to the European Parliament with the aim of raising the community's awareness about food paradoxes, sharing best practices and identifying concrete solutions to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
