#br6 john mackey - can jk save the world of food

probably no bsinessess leader in usa as as passionate about the supply chains of what he sells as john mackey- at least in terms of the supply chain and whether its living up to whatever criteria - fair tade, organic etc it promises

it seems to me thar once amazon has chosen it new hq either mackey will go into hyoerdrive about quality food or he will get ever more sideleined- i mean noiw that bezos has woin out in dominating so many market sectirs- whats his purpose- other than making money - will he aim to make americans higher quality consumers

-in the old days (eg the marls and spencer principole) continoius impriovement meant the longer we do this the beter we should be and its up to us to decide when to elad society to better quality or when to pass this on in beter value

at the same time rokefeller see below is calling for 21st food chains- and technically blockchain may be able to gtrachk supplies in detail not previously imagined

then chefs like jamie oliver exposed how truly awful the school food system is in many states - as well as what a pity american neiborhoods cant reorgansie themselves either around slow food- many ethnic recipesd are best cooked as celcbrations and shared by large families - alternatively as citiues become people friedly instead of designed for cars maybe the locak fresh cooked neighboorhood delicatessens can make a come back- we have huge markets for carry out - but why are they with soem asian exceptions dominated by junk in usa

Dear chris,

October 16th is World Food Day, a time for taking stock of the progress to end global hunger and to point out the mounting obstacles to feeding the world with a healthier, more sustainable food system. Not only are more than 800 million people going to bed hungry each night around the world, but we also recognize that nearly 2 billion people suffer from obesity and overweight. Our current food production system is accountable for a quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, 70% of global freshwater use, and is depleting soils, water quality, and natural habitats in much of the world.

These challenges—while unprecedented—are not insurmountable. Success will require new thinking, bold initiatives, increased capacities and the ability to translate innovative science into effective policy and practice. I invite you to read through below the different ways we're working with dedicated, courageous, and creative partners who believe our food system can be transformed, in hopes of inspiring you to join us in creating a food revolution that feeds, nourishes, and sustains us for generations to come.
