ITALY AND FOOD - NUTRITIONAL CHALLENGES, AGRICULTURE, FOOD LOSS AND WASTE

The report is a study of Italy’s agri-food system, based on the Food Sustainability Index.

Italians are among the longest-living people in the world, but 37% of children and adolescents and 59% of adults are overweight.
Italy is one of the European Union’s largest agricultural producers, but land degradation is becoming a significant problem.
Italy generates 2.2 million tons of food waste every year, but has strong national policies in place to combat the phenomenon.

These issues are explored with the intention of raising awareness and building a conversation on food system sustainability, and fosters change to achieve the Goals set by the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs).
