One change that we have definitely seen in the last few months is the increase in the number of conversations we are having about food and the food system.
Knowing where our food comes from is the the first step towards ensuring we understand our food system. When armed with the knowledge of how the system works, we are in a better position to make smarter food choices, thus reclaiming the power from the industrialized system.
Amidst all the gloom there are small pockets of positivity and things that make us smile. Hold on to them, they’ll help us get through this.
COVID-19 is changing the food system as we know drastically — how we shop, grow, and consume. The Great Bubonic Plague was the last pandemic that had a major impact on food and dramatically increasing livestock and farmlands.
2019 was a year of experimentation for us. A lot of firsts, a lot of unchartered territory. We look forward to more impactful and tangible projects this year and a lot of interesting collaborations.
We spoke about the future of Indian food with a series of artifacts from the future. It was an interesting exercise to see how the signals we’ve been collecting here so far (and sharing them with you) could be merged to point to a particular scenario.
A food system in India that leaves no individual behind through an interdisciplinary collaborative approach.
It’s an exciting time to be at the crossroads of cuisine and culture as we try to ask ourselves who we are and what our food is to all of us.
If you have the power to make a food choice (eg: organic vs not, Swiggy vs Zomato) then you have to power to ask some great questions.
India doesn’t need just food anymore, India needs diversity and better nutrition in her food.
