Wageningen to host global secretariat of WEF Food Hubs

Globally, almost 2 billion people do not have access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food, and 690 million suffer from hunger. With 10 years to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, we need to fundamentally change the way food is produced and consumed.

Food Innovation Hubs are being established across the world to leverage technology and broader innovations to strengthen local innovation ecosystems for food systems transformation. Last November, the World Economic Forum announced the European Food Innovation Hub will be established in Wageningen.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced that the Netherlands will host the Global Coordinating Secretariat of the Food Innovation Hubs. This secretariat will also operate from Wageningen.
