Sustainable Food

OMICS International has 18 Journals related to Food Science. It has published 1125 Open Access articles along with 3315 conference proceedings, 20 upcoming conferences related to Food Science. Moreover, around 671 symposiums are going to be hosted all across the globe related to Food.

Sustainable food system is a food system based on healthy soil, clean air and water, and regenerative energy to support profitable and resilient farming and fishing communities and a healthy food supply for all.Our working definition for good food is that it should be produced, processed, distributed and disposed of in ways that:
Contribute to thriving local economies and sustainable livelihoods - both in the UK and, in the case of imported products, in producer countries;
Protect the diversity of both plants and animals and the welfare of farmed and wild species, Avoid damaging or wasting natural resources or contributing to climate change; Provide social benefits, such as good quality food, safe and healthy products, and educational opportunities.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more Scientific Societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The Conference Series website will provide you list and details about the conferences organized across the globe.

Scope and Importance:
Improvements by specific farmers of their individual performance don’t always add up to the health of a watershed or the well-being of farm communities. Preventing deforestation, for example, requires agreements throughout the forest zone. Fundamentally improving the livelihoods and resilience of small-scale producers involves multiple crops and markets, not just a single cash crop.The implications for sustainable sourcing are profound: A sustainable supply of raw materials requires resilience of water, soil, and biodiversity. A license to do business requires social well-being for families and communities. Neither a reliable supply nor a good reputation in sourcing regions can be fully addressed with a supply chain lens. In fact, supply chains with divergent codes and audits can get in the way of efficient progress with multiple customers and complex rotations, as well as in situations where food security and livelihoods require multi-sector investments. Current Food System

• Over 7 billion people
• 1 billion have too little
• 1.6 billion eat too much
Wasting> 40% of food
People who are hungry do one of three things: they revolt, they migrate, or they die
• Two-thirds of health-care costs can now be attributed to chronic diseases associated with unhealthy eating. 20th Century Agriculture: the health cost. 2009, CAPI
• The average American consumes about 3747 kcal per day (not including junk food) compared to the recommended 2000 to 2500 kcal per day
Population, Excess Consumption and Waste
• Total Calories Required= # people x 2300 calories x Consumption factor per person x Waste factor per person
• Furthermore, with carelessness of wasting 40%, must provide 158 billion cal/d
• 9 - 10 billion people (30 – 40 % increase)
• In developing countries, average incomes rise, they consume more meat and richer foods
• Thus increase food production by 70 – 100%
• In developing countries, more and improved education for women goal of < 9 billion people (< 30% increase)
• In developed countries, reduce food waste less meat (higher quality) more pulses less fat, salt and sugar (decrease food requirement here by 30%)

The modern consumer is very complex. Consumers are not only basing their food and beverage purchases on taste and price, but they are also concerned about where their food comes from, how its production has impacted the environment, how close the final product is to its raw ingredients, and also how its purchase affects the income of the producers down the product development chain. These concerns can be summed up into five main categories of sustainable food and beverages: organic, locally sourced, fair trade, carbon footprint, and eco-packaging. The wide variety of issues under sustainability shows that it is more than just “being green” or making green product choices.

Although sustainability is important to many consumers, there is a disparity between what consumers say they will do and their actual purchase behaviour. For example, the following two tables from a Datamonitor survey show that people in most countries agree that it is important to buy ethically or socially responsible products, while a lesser amount of the same group say that they have altered their purchasing habits to purchase more ethically or socially responsible products. Some of the reasons for this discrepancy are linked to individual economic circumstances and social behaviours. Some consumers may not fully trust labels that claim that a product is sustainable, organic, locally produced, or uses eco-packaging, while other consumers may not trust that a company is doing the best it can to be fully sustainable in its practices. Brazil is the current leader in terms of the number of consumers who agree that they are altering their purchasing habits to include purchasing more ethical or socially responsible products, while consumers in the Netherlands are the least likely.
