GMO Inside - If corporations won't label GMOs, then we the people will.

Dear Green American,

After the climate talks in Paris, it is even more clear that the solution is in the soil. We need to change the food industry in order to reduce greenhouse gases and mitigate climate change.

That’s why I’ll be attending the Sustainable Foods Summit this January 20-22 in San Francisco.

I hope you, your business, your organization, or your community group can join us.

See you in San Francisco.

Sustainable foods summit

Implications of COP21 to Sustainable Food

The world climate summit in Paris (COP21) highlighted the need to reduce greenhouse gases in the food industry.

With livestock products generating as much emissions as energy and transport, how can the food industry move towards plant-based alternatives? What sustainable proteins are emerging? What are the developments in dairy-free and meat-free products?

Such questions will be addressed in the upcoming Sustainable Foods Summit, hosted in San Francisco on January 20-22.
