TE-FOOD is accepted by the United Nations as a partner to the Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme
We are proud to announce that the activities of TE-FOOD were recognised by the United Nations’ Sustainable Food Systems Programme. Some weeks ago, our joint project with FAO was featured in the newsletter of the SFS Programme. Now, TE-FOOD is accepted to join the programme as a partner.
In 2012, the United Nations started the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP). The One Planet Network has been formed to implement the commitment of the 10YFP, to gather global partners generating collective impact through its six programmes.
One of the six programmes is the Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Programme is a multi-stakeholder partnership focused on catalyzing more sustainable food consumption and production patterns.
The SFS Programme is established to accelerate the shift towards a noble vision:
All food systems are sustainable, delivering food security and nutrition for present and future generations.
During the last 6 years, more than 100 partners were accepted to the programme, including organizations like FAO, WWF, UNESCO, University of Oxford, and ministries of several countries (e.g. U.S. Department of Agriculture). The programme includes corporate partners as well like Barilla and Nestlé.
First and foremost, this partnership gives further credibility to TE-FOOD. To be accepted as a partner by FAO and the SFS Programme means that our efforts are recognised by the global organizations of the food sector.
It also gives the opportunity to access and team up with other respected partners to develop innovative projects at scale, and affiliate our existing projects with the SFS Programme.
