1 in 10 sick from food borne illnessAn estimated 600 million people, almost 1 in 10 people in the world, fall ill as a result of eating contaminated food and 420,000 die every year.

Strategic communications

We’re working towards safe and sustainable food for all by 2040, by creating coalitions for change assisted by strategic communications.

9 billion people by 2050With global population expected to exceed nine billion by 2050, pressures have been placed on existing food systems and this has implications for food safety.


Evidence and insight

By collating the best evidence base possible, we focus our investment in the areas that create the most effective solutions to our planet’s critical food safety challenges.

Foresight Review on Food Safety

Our Foresight Review on Food Safety highlighted that the Foundation's efforts should focus on: 

  • Education and training: an interconnected approach that brings academia, citizens, governments, industry and non-governmental organisations together to act on solutions.
  • Traceability in the food supply chain and development of a broad range of technologies to connect the steps and make food more traceable and, therefore, safer for consumers.
  • Delivering an ocean of food: investing in aquaculture and seafood production for greater food safety and sustainability, focusing on improving current practices, and expanding and upscaling for the future.
