Despite the recent uptake of innovative production systems, food systems continue to move on unsustainable trajectories. This can be explained by many sustainability interventions addressing solely more obvious but less powerful areas of intervention rather than engaging with the root causes of unsustainability. Instead, FOODLEVERS focuses on those leverage points at which interventions promise far more potential to transform food systems into sustainable ones. It aims to promote higher resource-efficiency, highlight inefficiencies, specify the reasons for decision-making processes that led to the current configuration of food systems, and thus identify configurations that “work” and may be scaled up.
Therefore, the project will analyse case studies of innovative organic and sustainable food systems troughout Europe and identify best practice processes. By doing so, key leverage points will be identified to further develop and scale up existing innovative organic and sustainable food systems.
