The Sustainable Food System (SFS) Task Force Meeting was held on Monday 28th of May in the framework of OECD Week in Paris. The working group continued to discuss and refine the policy recommendations that will be presented to G20 at the end of the year.

Arcor President and SFS Chair, Luis Pagani, opened the meeting accompanied by SFS Deputy Chair Cecilia Rena.  They were joined by Miguel Kozuszok (B20 Sustainable Food System Co-Chair & Unilever CEO Latam), Phil O’Reilly (SFS Co-Chair & Business at OECD Chair) and Gonzalo Francisco Bofill Velarde (SFS Co-Chair & Carozzi Group Chairman).

The meeting focused on public policy recommendations on the basis of sustainable production and food access: trade barriers, environmental conservation, food loss & waste, technology development & adoption, malnutrition, undernourishment and obesity were among the topics discussed by the working group.

“The Sustainable Food System Task Force seeks to strengthen food security, nutrition, and the social, economic, technological and environmental sustainability of food systems. This implies analysing trade and addressing it from an integrated perspective that will allow food production for an ever-increasing population in a context of cost reduction. Our consensus process seeks to preserve human life on the planet and follow through with the goals established by Sustainable Development on our way to 2030” said Luis Pagani.

The task force will meet again in Buenos Aires on July 27th, just one day before the G20 Agricultural Ministerial meeting.
