Organic Food against Climate Change challenge #OFACC

We launched the “Organic Food against Climate Change” challenge. Our aim is to support small entrepreneurs who can have a positive impact on the global food system and combat climate change. Conventional farming, overconsumption of meat and an increasing population exacerbate the current climate situation. “We are now at a point where we have to rethink the way we produce our food to be able to look into a green and sustainable future” Klaus Arntz, EVP Marketing and Sustainability, emphasises.  Wessanen itself is focussed on providing healthier food for healthier people and planet but believes that it will take a broad, concerted effort to create the needed change. Wessanen has therefore decided to go beyond what it can do as a business and want to reach out to small innovative businesses, who address key challenges of the global food system and its impact on climate change.
