Though a start-up, EIT Food is operating in an international environment and has characteristics of a multinational. EIT Food members have a strong belief that the food sector needs to be transformed and that this can only be achieved by reconnecting partners within the food sector and by giving the consumer a more central role. The main issues the food sector is facing are that it is complex, fragmented, slow to adopt new technologies, not attractive to new talent, and not resource efficient. An effective food sector is needed to address major societal issues and challenges: feeding 9-10 billion people in 2050; 3 billion overweight people; 2 billion undernourished people; more than 30% of food wasted. EIT Food s vision is to put Europe at the centre of a global revolution in food innovation and production, and its value in society. EIT Food will engage consumers in the change process, improve nutrition and make the food system more resource-efficient, secure, transparent and trusted. EIT Food has six strategic objectives: Overcome low consumer trust: support Europeans in the transition towards a smart food system that is inclusive and trusted; Create consumer valued food for healthier nutrition: enable individuals to make informed and affordable personal nutrition choices; Build a consumer-centric connected food system: develop a digital food supply network with consumers and industry as equal partners; Enhance sustainability: develop solutions to transform the traditional produceusedispose model into a circular bio-economy; Educate to engage, innovate and advance: Provide food system skills for more than 10,000 students, entrepreneurs and professionals through advanced training programmes. Catalyse food entrepreneurship and innovation: foster innovation at all stages of business creation. EIT Food boosts the skills and entrepreneurial spirit in the sector and unlocks the potential of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), which in turn will accelerate innovation, create jobs, benefit businesses and increase Europe s competitiveness.
