Healthy Food Systems Program

We are tackling food security & the natural food supply chain.

In developing countries, especially in Southeast Asia, access to trustworthy sources of food to eat is hard to come by with food security becoming a major issue facing countries such as Vietnam. 

Farming is poorly regulated and monitored in general. Additionally, in Vietnam, there is a complete lack of a trusted certification system and governing body. These issues are spread across the fresh produce value chain. Additionally, inefficient gaps in the food supply chain lead to high spoilage, high prices of clean food, and unaffordability to local markets with little gain for the farmers.

Besides fresh produce, the farming industry has turned a blind-eye to humane animal welfare as industrial production is driving animals into cages with mistreatment. With a focus only on profits, this puts immense pressure on our food systems driving them further towards the brink of destruction.

Lastly, climate change puts farmers at great risk of losing crops and livelihoods as temperatures rise, storms become more frequent & stronger, and more extreme conditions overall. Farmers now are in urgent need of climate change resilience skills to adapt to the changing world with continuing to access markets.
