We all need to eat to survive. Food production has one of the biggest impacts on climate change, so we need to be smarter about how we farm, produce and distribute our food to ensure the planet can continue providing for us.

Why does it matter?

What we eat comes directly from the environment. Yet food production has the greatest negative impact of any human activity. Our farming and consumption practices must take into account the maintenance of landscapes, regeneration of resources and the wellbeing of local communities.

Did you know?

One third of all food produced in South Africa is wasted every year. It works out to a total of 10 million tonnes.

What is WWF doing?

We advocate good stewardship of natural resources, promoting sustainable agriculture and fishing. We also support best practice solutions on farms and seafood supply chains, working with the government and industry to reduce the environmental impact of food production.

Our complex food system

It's not easy to fix, but we can do it one bite at a time. WWF works to promote responsible sourcing and regenerative agriculture, as well as promoting the need to reduce food and water waste and drive a shift to sustainable diets.
