Food sense from United Nations
At last, a global policy that links agriculture to food. The United Nations Global Compact, which Zenith signed some ten years ago, has added business principles for food and agriculture.
The rationale is that “business is a critical partner for governments … to make food systems secure and agricultural sustainable.”
The first principle is the most important because it links production to purpose, which is health and nutrition – “to provide nutrition and promote health for every person on the planet.”
If your company hasn’t signed up to the UN Global Compact, I believe you really should consider it. Even more so now. It’s very easy to sign up. It’s rather harder to follow up.
