WHEAT AND BREAD: CAN AGRICULTURE PRODUCE ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE?

In collaboration with Cdo Agroalimentare.
Angelo Frascarelli, President of ISMEA; Alessio Mammi, Agriculture Councillor of Emilia-Romagna Region; Stefano Pezzini, Member of the Board of Directors and of the Advertising Commission, Grana Padano Protection Consortium; Ugo Ravanelli, President of MARR. Introduced by Camillo Gardini, President of Cdo Agroalimentare.

The global food demand is relentlessly increasing; by way of example, the demand for grains has increased from 1,750 million tons in 2010 to 2,300 million tons in 2022. And it keeps going up. Until 2021, agricultural production has been able to fulfil the increase in food consumption. 2022 instead is plagued by a major world food crisis due to the Russia-Ukraine war and the drought. Will agriculture be able to produce enough wheat and bread for everyone? Will the main farming strategy rely on productivity or sustainability? Food or the environment? Intensive or organic farming? This debate aims to answer all of these key questions.
