How do we feed a growing world?

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, ” What cooperatives play a role in your life/business?”

Our poll results: Ten percent said Electric/water/utilities; ten percent said Farm Credit/credit union; five percent said Farm supplies; twenty percent said Energy/biofuels; three percent said Farm commodity; three percent said Other; thirty-five percent said Two or more of the above; and fifteen percent said None.

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What is most important for feeding growing world population?” As of today, it is estimated at a little over 7 billion; by 2050 it is estimated it will be slightly over 9 billion. With a steadily increasing population, how do we feed everyone? What do you think?

ZimmPoll is sponsored by Rhea+Kaiser, a full-service advertising/public relations agency.

    Just to name a few that come spontaneously to my mind, in the list of options, I would have liked to see:
    Reduce food waste
    Reduce post-harvest losses
    Unleash the potential of Africa
    Develop infrastructure
    Improve farmers’ access to market
    Give farmers the means to succeed through financing and extension services
    Educate consumers to reduce overconsumption (the fit or fat? question)
