Taking a holistic perspective on food systems

Everyone, everywhere deserves access to safe, nutritious food. But today, millions of people live without it. The way food is produced, processed, distributed and consumed – summarised by the UN under the term food systems – is unbalanced, wasteful and unsustainable. To improve food security and have a less negative impact on the planet, food systems need to transform. At Tetra Pak, we are committed to play our part in making food systems more secure and sustainable.

Transforming the world’s food systems is no small undertaking. It requires system-wide collaboration with customers, governments, stakeholders, and NGOs. That is why we are working across the entire value chain to achieve a world with secure and sustainable food systems.

School Feeding Programmes
