Food, People and Planet: learning from science
The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation (BCFN) analyses the environmental, economic and social aspects of food and inspires us to promote better solutions and good practices for all.
Food, People and Planet
By working with international experts and scientists, the Barilla Foundation produces scientific material aimed at analysing the complexity of current agro-food system, promoting solutions and good practices for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) endorsed by 193 countries, towards the 2030 Agenda.
The Foundation has introduced the Double Pyramid model, which highlights the very close link between two aspects of every type of food item: foods with the lowest environmental impact are also those recommended by nutritionists for our health.
The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation (BCFN) analyzes the complexity of current agro-food systems and, through a variety of initiatives, fosters change towards healthier and more sustainable lifestyles in order to achieve the goals set by the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs).
The Barilla Foundation promotes an open dialogue between Science, Politics, Business and Society both nationally and internationally. It addresses today's major food related issues with a multidisciplinary approach and from the environmental, economic and social perspective, to secure the wellbeing and health of people and the planet.
