- Rabobank deals with the most prominent food issues in their “Growing a better world together” project
Not only Africa needs a new approach in its fight against hunger. Over the next 30 years, the world's population will grow explosively. 2 billion more people will inhabit the earth, the amount of agricultural land will shrink and no less than 1 in 3 kilos of food will be wasted. This means we need to produce a lot more food without depleting the earth, that we have to restore agricultural land and waste less food. Rabobank contributes to solving these urgent problems by kickstarting and upscaling the smartest innovations of their customers and partners. This way, they help to tackle the largest food issues in the world.
