Global Collaboratory on Food Security – Indonesia

Last week, DuPont hosted a Global Collaboratory in Jakarta, Indonesia, which focused on bridging the nutrition gap in that country.  The panel discussion, moderated by BBC World News host Adam Shaw, brought together Indonesian officials, business and thought leaders to share their ideas on how we can collaborate and address the challenge of feeding Indonesia.

“Indonesia is at a turning point in its development. This is the time to make the choices that will ensure food security for its inhabitants broadly and sustainably,” said Brian Jones, regional president, Asia Pacific for DuPont Nutrition & Health.   “And while the challenge starts in the field, it ends at tables across Indonesia where families sit down to eat. Only by joining forces through collaboration will we succeed in addressing the challenges of feeding our planet, adequately and sustainably,” Jones concluded.

At this event Jim Borel added, “We cannot achieve food security absent genuine sustainability that encompasses how food is produced, how it gets to market, and how it is served on our plates”.
