Summary

The Geography of Food Research Group deals with local and global questions on the sustainability of agricultural and food systems. The aim is to optimise the ecological, social and economic impact of the whole value chain. Based on comprehensive evaluations and feasibility studies, the research group develops new, application-oriented solutions for a sustainable nutritional system. It thereby supports decision-makers from business, politics and non-profit organisations in implementing future-oriented strategies "from the field to the plate".
