Role of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Creating the Future Food System
Encourage SMEs in your network to join the UN Dialogue on the Role of SMEs in Creating the Future Food System.
This dialogue was in English and took place on 10 June 2021.
EIT Food is committed to empowering small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) which constitute at least half of the food system. EIT Food hosted the above Dialogue to dive deep into the potential for SMEs to drive food system transformation.
50 SMEs around the world have been announced as the Best Small Businesses of the “Good Food for All” competition, held in conjunction with the UN Food Systems Summit. The top 50 have been chosen from nearly 2,000 applications from 135 countries, as their work best exemplifies the Summit’s aim of delivering all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by providing healthy, sustainable food and livelihoods for all.
