Global Significance of Sustainable Food Systems

  • Food systems have a profound impact on every aspect of our lives, including health, the environment, economies, and social culture.
  • Recent events such as the Covid pandemic, trade and political barriers, global disruptions, and climate change have highlighted the inherent instability of the food and beverage industry.

International Commitment to Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems

  • During the 28th Session of the Conferences of the Parties (COP28) in Dubai, a declaration on Sustainable Agriculture, Resilient Food Systems, and Climate Change was signed by 134 nations, including Malaysia.
  • The global acceptance of the impact of food and drink industry on greenhouse gas emissions led to this significant commitment.

Impact of Climate Change on Food Security

  • Climate change is leading to a rise in global food insecurity, with extreme weather events such as droughts, heatwaves, and heavy rainfall becoming more frequent.
  • Higher prices for food commodities in 2022 resulted in an additional 30 million people facing food insecurity.

Challenges in the Food and Beverage Industry

  • • The food industry must invest in energy-efficient and decarbonization technologies to address the increasing share of greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy usage and industrial processing.
  • The industry is the primary contributor to methane emissions and biodiversity loss.

Malaysia's Commitment to Sustainable Food Systems

  • Malaysia recognizes the importance of ensuring food sustainability to meet the needs of a growing population, prevent food shortages, reduce reliance on imports, preserve the environment, stimulate the economy, and enhance public health.
  • Prioritizing sustainable food production and adopting environmentally-friendly practices can help establish a resilient and inclusive food system in Malaysia.
