Sainsbury’s Future of Food report

This report from UK supermarket Sainsbury’s sets out predictions for how the food system might be in the years 2025, 2050 and 2169. Near-term predictions include milk made from algae, and increased numbers of flexitarian eaters, while long-term predictions include farming in inhospitable landscapes such as deserts or Mars, and personal microchip implants that tell us exactly what nutrition we need.

The report references Allan Savory’s holistic grazing management in the 2169 scenario in the context of land management scenarios for reversing desertification. For further discussion of this approach, see the FCRN report Grazed and Confused? and the page Holistic management - a critical review of Allan Savory’s grazing method.
