Transforming the food system and overcoming the many environmental challenges it faces will require innovation at scale. With food production responsible for around a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions and at the centre of many other environmental issues, Tesco and WWF have come together in a project designed to halve the environmental impact of the average UK shopping basket.
In this podcast, Toby Webb speaks to Anna Turrell, head of environment, Tesco, and Sarah Wakefield, head of food transformation, WWF, about the Tesco and WWF Sustainability Innovation Fund. Tesco and WWF are seeking late-stage innovations focused on sustainable agriculture solutions. The fund will support innovators and scale-up companies capable of delivering proven environmental innovations in partnership with suppliers operating in Tesco’s supply chain.
