About Us

“We are a professional science-based organization advocating to establish a national sustainable food system and food security for all Israelis now and in the future”
There is a growing obesity trend and mounting food insecurity that co-exist in Israel. This paradox is the result of an unhealthy food environment. Despite the need for increased access to healthy food, the Israeli agricultural sector is collapsing and about a third of all food produced is wasted. Globalization, coupled with climate change, is poised to increase the burden on the global and Israeli food systems.

How can we meet these challenges now and in the future? How can we provide personal and national food security? What is the role that each sector must play in order to provide a healthy and sustainable food environment?
