“Food is one of the most wonderful - but also devastating - things in our system. There is a lot to do, and restaurants can’t do it on their own, farmers can’t do it on their own. There needs to be legislation, technology, innovation all coming together, and an incentive - potentially from the government - to get everyone to shift. If we go ahead and really change things systemically, there is a more sustainable model not just for the environment, but financially.”
