    The EAT-Lancet Report One Year Later

    The EAT-Lancet Report One Year Later

    In January 2019, the EAT-Lancet report came out. Written by academics, this report described what should be done to achieve a healthier diet that is better for the environment. One of the main conclusions is that meat consumption, and therefore production, should be reduced. In this episode of Consumer Foods-to-Go, host Cyrille Filott and co-host Maria Castroviejo discuss with Fabrice DeClerck, science director at EAT, the content of the report, what has happened on the back of the report, and what still needs to happen to achieve a sustainable diet.

    Nutri-Score: A, B, C, Easy as 1, 2, 3... Or Is It?

    Nutri-Score: A, B, C, Easy as 1, 2, 3... Or Is It?

    The new Nutri-Score food labelling system is being rolled out by various retailers and food producers over the next few years in Europe. Nutri-Score may help consumers make a healthier choice by providing a letter representing the nutritional value of a given food product – ranging from A (healthy) to E (unhealthy). In this episode of Consumer Foods-to-Go, your host Cyrille Filott shares the mic with fellow Rabobank specialists Maria Castroviejo and Sebastiaan Schreijen. They take a look at all actors involved in the launch of Nutri-Score: governments, retailers, food producers, and consumers. But how will the food industry itself respond to the new labels?

    Rabobank’s Commodities Outlook for 2020 – What Does it Mean for Food Companies?

    Rabobank’s Commodities Outlook for 2020 – What Does it Mean for Food Companies?

    Rabobank has recently published its agri commodities outlook report, “Supply Slide Saves Grounded Demand”. In this edition of Consumer Foods to Go, Cyrille Filott is discussing the outlook with its lead author, Rabobank’s own Stefan Vogel. Demand growth for agri commodities in general is pedestrian, while there is still abundant growth on the supply side. However, prices for some commodities (including sugar) are very low and may move up from here. We discuss risks to price movements like African Swine Fever, trade wars and obviously weather. The key message of the report is that demand needs to pick up dramatically to cause a big move in prices; otherwise supply, partly driven by technology, will more than keep up with demand.

    Sustainable Food in Asia – A Different Reality

    Sustainable Food in Asia – A Different Reality

    This Consumer Foods to Go episode comes from Shanghai, and is devoted to sustainability in F&A in Asia. Why? Because the views in that region are very different from what is the norm in the US and Europe. This podcast sheds light on these differences and how to make sustainability in Asia practical. We have enlisted the help of an outsider this time: Richard Brubaker, the founder of Collective Responsibility, will guide us through the issues and solutions. He has a view on meat substitutes in Asia! And did we mention he has been living in Shanghai for 19 years?
