Redesign food experience

The quality of life we enjoy depends on what we consume and waste and what we consume and waste has a direct impact on the quality of the soil and the air we breathe.
Food tells us every day that we are part of nature, that we are part of a single system, where our individual well-being is not independent of our collective well-being, that inappropriate eating habits and food waste have consequences on our health, the environment and the economy. We need to redesign our consumer experience.
