INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON FOOD & NUTRITION

Every year, the BCFN Foundation organises the International Forum on Food and Nutrition, an open event for discussion and debate on issues of nutrition and sustainability.

Experts, international opinion makers and young researchers come together every year for an interdisciplinary event created in order to share findings, scientific data and best practices aimed at building a food model which protects people’s health and the wellbeing of the planet.

From the analysis of the results of research promoted by the Foundation and the contributions of highly regarded speakers, every edition of the Forum has been able to set out practical and effective solutions to urgent issues such as hunger and obesity, the correct use of natural resources, food waste, sustainable diets, the environmental impact of agricultural production and climate change.
