The International Whole Grain Day 2020, November 19th

2020 has brought many things, including a reminder of how important resilient, sustainable, productive, and healthy food systems are in our lives. For policy makers, it is a fundamental task to continue to invest in policies to tackle the “triple challenge” of simultaneously providing food security and nutrition to a growing global population, ensuring the livelihoods of millions of people working along the food chain farm to fork, and ensuring the environmental sustainability of the sector in the medium and long term. Studies show that whole grain foods save water, provide more food and less waste, and support better land use and healthy soil.

As part of our 2nd Annual International Whole Grain Day celebration, watch key opinion leaders from around the globe offer their support for whole grains!
