Underutilized Crops & Planetary Health November 12, 2020 by Leah Wolfe

A few themes we explore in this session:

  • What are some of the crops that we should be considering going forward that improve biodiversity and are resilient in the face of climate change?
  • How can food manufacturers and brands best compare alternative crops for their ingredients and products?
  • Are there nutritional benefits to underutilized crops in addition to environmental benefits?
