Discover a healthier hunger-free world
Food is basic to life and our global food system must innovate to sustain it. A population of nine billion people in year 2050 will demand a staggering 70% increase in the world’s food supply. Simply increasing production will not eradicate hunger nor improve human health. One third of food produced is now lost or wasted due to flaws in process, economics, energy, behavior, and policy. Food discovery at Ohio State is innovation that works across disciplines; it is the best ideas from academic, government, and industry professionals that solve local, national and global food needs. The Ohio State Food Innovation Center has the tools and talent to improve access to abundant, safe, health-promoting food.
