LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BUILDING BLOCKS
The food system is composed of many different parts that are interdependent on one another. From fertiliser application to household dietary desires, every decision we make contributes to the health of the overall system.
Over the past two decades the predictability of production experienced during the second half of the twentieth century has been becoming less certain. Climate change, demographics, population growth, and consumption patterns are just some of the things driving continual change within the system.
The system operates within the limits of our planet and the finite resources it provides us. Assessing the state of the building blocks provides an indication of the overall health of the system.
