The role of sustainable agriculture in the global Food Chain is vital both for humans and animals. It needs the intervention of Food Science (FS) and Technology (T) as appropriate to the crop and the region from farm to consumer. This focus is powered by lead speakers and a panel of discussants from various regions of the world. Issues of capacity building, food supply, future earth, inclusive of sustainable local solutions for global problems leading to healthy diets will be addressed.
