Eating is probably the most intimate decision with the greatest overall impact.


What we eat says a lot about the world we do want, but also about the world we do have.

our approach

From a systemic view of food, and with a broad network of partners, we act with an interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach to raise awareness and impact individuals, institutions and decision makers, with two specific and interdependent goals



we produce, adapt and communicate content and research in an interdisciplinary and creative way.



we organize and facilitate meetings, events and opportunities for intersectoral debate.



we design fertile territories for reflection and proposition promoting the collaborative debate in the search for solutions.

promote a change in behavior and understanding about food and its impacts;

advocate for public policies that enable healthier and more sustainable food systems


why a food focused think tank ?

The contemporary food system is both the cause and consequence of today's major challenges. Placing food at the center of the debate in critical, collaborative, creative and communicative ways allows for a current, high-impact look at systemic transformation - what we eat changes the world, and this is our biggest challenge and at the same time our greatest opportunity.

global sindemics

Obesity, malnutrition and climate change are growing interconnected and with consequences at various scales and in all territories.

relevance and contemporaneity


increasing environmental awareness + sense of urgency: Global and crescent interest in food-related content and innovation, and on how to achieve healthy diets within sustainable systems.

transversality and intersectoriality


of the food system impacts (social, cultural and environmental flows) - all inseparable and challenging.

commitment to the global agenda


The food system has impacts in all the 17 sustainable development goals and in the global environmental agenda

political and institutional inertia


in solving the problems arising from the food system.



Focus on three strategic, interconnected areas that serve to organize the most pressing food system challenges:



resilient cities with healthy, fair and accessible food for all.



valorization of biodiversity, food diversity and with less climate impact.

Cenouras roasted


appreciation and recognition of the link between cultural practices and food, knowledge and flavors.
