    I would consider the biggest problem with the food space right now being consumer confusion. I think there are a lot of people doing a lot of amazing work. I think it’s fantastic that over the last 20+ years, people have raised awareness about the fact that there are problems with the food system, but […]

    I think the biggest problem with the food system today is what I call flat out fraudulent labeling. We have made it so difficult for someone to understand just exactly what it is they’re buying. The companies are allowed to put statements on there that have nothing to do with the food that they’re selling, […]

    The biggest problem with our food system right now is our lack of connection. You can call it transparency if that’s the way you want to look through the lens; you could call it just our lack of cooking the food itself. I’m a chef, and one of my biggest pet peeves is when people […]

    The biggest food problem that we have today is supply for good quality, clean raised food. Particularly in the United States, we’ve lost our population base that are farmers; industrial farming getting bigger continuously over the last few years. So probably the biggest problem is stopping that and reversing that if we’re talking about having […]

    Change Food

    One of the biggest problems with the food system today doesn’t start with food – it starts with time, or the lack of time. And I think the lack of time relates to consumers, people, and the lack of time they have to make the right choices and do the right thing that they would […]

  • What is your vision for the Food System? – Chuck Eggert

    Change Food

    As I look forward into the future and kind of envisioning what we think natural food is going to look like – and we’re still using the word as a descriptor – that I’m excited for the change, for the fact that people will go back to smaller farms, that people will go back to […]

  • What is your vision for the Food System? – Diane Hatz

    Change Food

    My vision for the food system is that one day, hopefully in not the too distant future, everyone will have access to healthy food. That food will be considered a right just as water and air are a right, and that people will not be starving. I know that’s idealistic, and I know people might […]

  • What is your vision for the Food System? – George Faison

    Change Food

    My vision for the food system is that I think everybody should grow all their own food in their own home. Well, that’s not going to happen. I know that. But I think that if they pay attention, and they demand that food be raised responsibly, that we can have – at least on the […]

    More time at the table. You know, more time at the table, wherever that may be. I think it’s important. I tell people everything I learned about the world, I learned at my parents’ table. The good and the bad, I learned manners, learned social behaviors, learned how to interact, learned how to fight. But […]

    Change Food

    Well my vision since I’m involved with Niman Ranch is to see the double and triple in the number of farmers and the amount of livestock that we can provide with high animal welfare levels, with clean raised; instead of having a small part of our food system being clean it would eventually become the […]

  • What is your vision for the Food System? – Sara Brito

    Change Food

    My vision for the future of food and the food system is one that is connected to life, because food is life, and when we are disconnected from food, and every aspect of the food system, starting with the water, and the land, the animals, the people who produce it, the purveyors who bring it […]

  • What is your vision for the Food System? – Stefanie Sacks

    Change Food

    My vision for the future of the food system is shortened ingredient lists, and consumers who actually care about what’s in their food, and take the time to read labels and ask questions, and make better choices.
