Forgotten Foods to Feed the Future
Sayed Azam-Ali |
• November 2021
Dedicating his life and research towards transforming food systems for good, Prof. Sayed Azam-Ali calls for a diversification of crops grown today by shifting away from industrialized crops transported along carbon-heavy supply chains. Advocating for the rediscovery of climate-resilient and nutritious “forgotten” crops, Prof. Azam-Ali undermines the need for an increased reliance on scientists, researchers, and young people to create new business and management systems, intergenerational and cultural links and partnerships, for better, more nutritious and environmentally-sustainable food systems.
