The partners plan to build on the momentum of September’s United Nations Food Systems Summit. Prior to the UN gathering, SGM and Griffith Foods organized a successful series of six online dialogues between innovative food leaders from the private, public, and NGO sectors.
Held from April through June, the six-part conversation series attracted more than 450 participants of varied ages, cultures and communities, drawn from more than 140 organizations, 38 countries, 15 economic sectors and 15 stakeholder groups. Each dialogue averaged more than 90 participants, all with unique perspectives. Ultimately, the series produced a set of tangle solutions addressing each of the summit’s five Action Tracks.
“We appreciated the opportunity to work with SGM to bring together such an eclectic and engaged group of people from around the world, all united in our eagerness to improve our current food systems and, in so doing, help overcome some of the great global challenges of our time,” said Griffith Foods Vice President of Global Culinary, Mark Serice. “Creativity and collaboration are key innovation drivers.”
SGM and Griffith Foods are grateful for the active participation of so many committed individuals and organizations in the conversation series, which was successful in beginning to develop creative and caring solutions for improving global food systems and addressing acute societal needs while protecting the planet. Both convening organizations look forward to building on the momentum of the dialogues and the UN Food Systems meeting at the SGM 2021 Summit.
