What if food could build biodiversity and tackle climate change? Rather than bending nature to produce food, food can be designed for nature to thrive. By rethinking how ingredients are used and produced, food businesses can provide choices that are better for customers, better for farmers, and better for the environment. Circular design for food uses the principles of the circular economy and applies them across all dimensions of food design, from product concept, through ingredient selection and sourcing, to packaging. This session will describe how circular design for food – fundamentally redesigning product portfolios to use all the diverse food outputs of a nature-positive food system – offers significantly greater benefits than using the same ingredients as today, and requires sourcing them better through regenerative production.

Demand for regeneratively produced inputs is skyrocketing in the food, fashion, and textile industries, but supply is lagging. Supplier capacity building projects, landscape-level investments, and pre-competitive collaboration between brands are just a few pathways to loosen this demand bottleneck. Let’s come together to discuss how more companies can become a part of this growing regenerative sourcing movement.
