#13 — Farmers’ friends, GM foods and did you miss us?


It’s been a while since we last wrote to you and feels good to be back!

Our 60-day whirlwind Global Mission is over and its business as usual. We were grateful for the incredible opportunity to meet so many exciting people, interesting companies and inspiring food heroes.

Also, we hosted our first panel discussion in Mumbai at The Bombay Canteen, despite roaring rains. Here’s more on the event.

While we’re still reeling from all this excitement and planning interesting features for the upcoming editions, here’s this week’s newsletter which is a compilation of the most interesting food system news from the last week. Dive in and enjoy!
