''We must produce food differently, better and greener, with a disruptive change in the whole food chain. Therefore, ‘We’ is the Key! We need SFI as a consortium of the 'coalition of the willing' to realize this and to contribute to a better and sustainable world. SFI is the platform to find joint solutions for a "healthy planet diet!”.  SFI is the example to collaborate on R&D both applied and fundamental, to innovate in the Field Labs, and to experiment in Living Labs.  If we cannot accomplish this in the Netherlands, who else can?''

''The SFI focuses on the enormous social task we face and comes up with roadmaps to achieve the set goals. The basic principle here is that structural collaboration is required between the business community, knowledge institutions, government and society. It is precisely by structurally establishing the connection between these actors based on the common goal that resources can be used more efficiently and effectively. The actors keep each other sharp in order to keep thinking from the goal and not from means.'' Read more
