Introducing The Food Forever Initiative

The Crop Trust initiated and supports the Food Forever Initiative (FFI), a global partnership which seeks to raise awareness for the importance and urgency of conserving and using agricultural biodiversity. More specifically, the Food Forever Initiative, which is comprised of a set of high-level Champions and partner organizations, advocates for concrete actions and ideas to support the implementation of the UN SDG target 2.5.

The Crop Trust is proud to be one of the conveners of the Food Forever Initiative. And on 11-12 June, we join Her Excellency the President of Mauritius, along with international policy makers, senior business and civil society leaders to launch this initiative to safeguard the basis of the world’s food supply.

“The importance of conserving and utilizing crop and livestock diversity cannot be overemphasized and is enshrined in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals,” says Her Excellency Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, the President of Mauritius, and chair of the The Food Forever Initiative.

His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, patron of the Crop Trust, also supports this initiative and in this recently released video address discusses the importance and urgency of conserving and using agricultural biodiversity.

For more information, we invite you to visit the newly launched Food Forever website.
