If we zoom out to the agricultural and food sector as a whole, we perceive a systemic crisis, fueled by decades of yield maximization and export-oriented policies in a globalizing economy. Food, turned into a commodity to generate (more) profit, feeds the greed of the few rather than the stomachs of the many. Harmful economic, social and environmental trends have broken our food and agricultural chain, and it has become impossible to continue business-as-usual. We have come to a turning point. Witness the growing critique of the current system, but also the many new alternative approaches to food and agriculture. In this paper Kati Van de Velde & Dirk Holemans explore the failings of the current agricultural and food system, and the possibilities for a transition to a sustainable and fair system.
