MacroGeo is a global independent research company providing geopolitical analysis whose ultimate goal is to produce high-end analysis and advisory services, while preserving its independence. We can rely on resident analysts and a global network of experienced contributors, each with a proven track record of excellence in their respective fields of expertise. Founded in 2016 by a joint initiative of Carlo De Benedetti, chairman of Gruppo Editoriale L’Espresso, and Lucio Caracciolo, director of Limes, the Italian review of geopolitics.
The coexistence of hunger and obesity, the overexploitation of natural resources and the large amounts of food lost and wasted are the three food paradoxes identified by the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation (BCFN).
The BCFN follows a multidisciplinary approach to contribute to tackle today’s major food-related issues from an environmental, economic and social perspective, to secure the well-being and health of both people and the Planet.
With its action-oriented approach, the BCFN seeks to act as a catalyst to develop frontier ideas, promote solutions and identify new, innovative ways to generate a positive impact towards the achievements of the SDGs and the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
Through research, dissemination and public engagement, our contribution to shift towards more sustainable food systems includes the Nutritional and Environmental Double Pyramid, the Milan Protocol as well as Eating Planet, the Food Sustainability Media Award, BCFNYES! and the educational programme Food, Us and our Planet and the MOOC on Sustainable Food Systems: A Mediterranean Perspective, in partnership with SDSN and SDG Academy.
Food sustainability is about culture, education, health, equity and respect for the planet we live in.
We hope that all these initiatives become useful tools for policy makers and civil society, for experts and trainers, and for anyone studying to work in the food system in the future.
Eat better, eat less, food for all.
