The World Food Center

The challenge

The ever growing world population and increasing pressure on the planet lead to huge challenges in the food chain. More so, our day to day choices have an impact on our body and our environment. To provide enough, nutritious and sustainable food for everyone today and in the future, a radical change in how we produce and consume food is needed.

The approach

The World Food Center unites consumers and organizations and stimulates them to take more responsibility and join forces to find solutions for challenges in the food chain we face today and in the future. We feed each other. we feed each other.

The World Food Center is the place to be for food. A place where consumers, private partners, knowledge institutes and governments can share knowledge and inspire one another. The lively urban area adds to both an eventful and meaningful lasting awareness among consumers and provide breeding ground for innovation.

World Food Center Experience

The World Food Center Experience offers an educational food adventure where consumers in a playful way get to understand the complex story of the food chain. The goal is to inspire visitors to make conscious choices every day for tasty, healthy and sustainable food.
On the site of the WFC Experience you will find all information.
