Public Engagement

Here at EIT Food, we define Public Engagement as “a set of diverse activities that foster a two-way dialogue between specialists and the public”.

As an organisation, we have always prioritised the active and important role consumers play in the change we seek.

Our Public Engagement team supports EIT Food’s mission-led approach by:

  • Enabling and empowering consumers to make better choices
  • Influencing food systems transformation policy and business practises through access to consumer insight
  • Changing public discourse around food and sustainability, and championing a mindset of transparent and science-based information

Together, we can transform the future of our food.
