We envision a world in which the 
food system is sustainable 
for the planet, 
providing communities 
with equal access to enough food.

Today´s 
food challenges

Increased demand through a growing population.

&

The limited ressources of our planet.

We keep growing as a human population. In 2050, we will need to feed 1.7 billion additional people. Yet our planet doesn’t grow - it has finite resources that we need to treat carefully.
Even without a growing population our food system today is not sustainable.
Each year, we waste 30% percent of the food that we have already produced. Enough to feed 3 billion people.

The global use of resources like water and land is inefficent, not maximizing the amount of people we could feed.

24% of our yearly green house gas emissions come from agriculture including livestock farming, forestry and other land use.

Without action, the world fails to meet the UN SDGs and the Paris Agreement. Today’s children would inherit a planet that has been severely degraded.

Produce more with less:
This means becoming more productive, growing plants faster, more resilient, while using less resources like land, water or fertilizer.

Reduce food waste:
Waste less of what we have produced. This eases the burden to produce more, saves resources both from our planet and people.

Change our diet:
The global shift towards a mainly plant-based diet helps to reduce green house gas emissions and frees up land to grow crops directly for people.

What can 
we do?

There are generally three big approaches to tackle these challenges.

Let´s make it happen

Susteyn started with the desire to have a positive impact on the world  and to inspire others to do the same. With indoor farming we contribute to efficiently produce locally with a fraction of the resources normally needed. It also gives us the opportunity to solve other challenges like greening offices or healthier lunch options with our office farms. This is a first step towards a sustainable food future. Given the diversity of challeneges we at Susteyn and in the industry as a whole, need equally diverse minds to make it happen.
