For all the advances in modern agricultural productivity, the world still faces a huge challenge if it is to feed 10 billion people by mid-century, using the same amount – if not less – available land. On that point, the Dutch health, nutrition and bioscience firm DSM has been accomplishing its part of this heavy lifting as it seeks to be a vital contributor to a more sustainable and efficient agriculture and food production sector.
From the company’s perspective, no single approach will solve the hurdles in securing a safe food supply, and DSM’s model demonstrates how an “all-of-the-above” approach is needed during the next few decades. New plans to feed the world will require transforming conventional means of animal farming and food production, the development of next-gen foods including plant-based proteins and investments in technology that can benefit both farmers and food manufacturers.
TriplePundit recently spoke with Jacobine Das Gupta-Mannak, DSM’s director of sustainability and lead nutrition, to learn more about how scientists at DSM are addressing the challenge to feed the world.
