Public engagement

We believe that we are all responsible for, and connected to, the food that we eat, so we all need to work together to improve it. Our activities are designed to engage with people so that they can become agents of change in the food system.

At EIT Food, we are building an inclusive and innovative community where you can be actively involved. Together we can deliver an innovative agrifood sector that produces both healthy and sustainable food and is trusted by society.

Examples of our public engagement activities can be grouped into the following areas:
