Food system refers to the constellation of activities involved in producing, processing, transporting and consuming food, which touch every aspect of human existence. In Asia, increasing food consumption by a growing population, together with changing dietary habits, poses an immense challenge for the global food system and is associated with environmental impacts, such as plastics and packaging, increasing use of harmful chemicals to increase production, and increasing food wastage. Shifting to more
sustainable food consumption patterns would greatly contribute to food systems transition in the context of Asia towards a sustainable, equitable, resilient and nutritious food system.
