New report from Thomson Reuters highlights how we feed 9 billion people in 2050

How will we feed 9 billion people in 2050?

If we are to meet the hungry demands of our future, we need a revolution in the way we produce and deliver food.

An estimated 805 million people will go to bed hungry tonight. “Hidden hunger” – or micronutrient deficiency – affects a further 2 billion. But in 2050 the global population is expected to reach 9 billion, and to accommodate this growth we must nearly double our current output of food, feed, and fiber. 

9 Billion Bowls is a multimedia report from Thomson Reuters that tells the story of a growing revolution: a diverse group of scientists, students, analysts and inventors turning insights into innovation at every link in the food supply chain. Using Big Data and leading edge technologies in entirely new ways to confront the hungry demands of our future.
