The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) commends the U.S. delegation to the United Nations Food Systems Summit today for standing up a new coalition that will focus on the role innovation plays in sustainably feeding a growing population.

The Coalition of Action on Sustainable Productivity Growth for Food Security and Resource Conservation will align likeminded countries and organizations around developing a holistic, systems approach to resource conservation and efficiency, enabling further progress on achieving several of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals.

At the AFIA, we know that the only way to make measurable progress on meeting the shared goals of ending global hunger, promoting access to clean water, achieving climate neutrality and alleviating food waste is to create a regulatory environment where innovation is championed and allowed to flourish," says AFIA’s President and CEO Constance Cullman.

"I commend Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power for their bold leadership at today’s U.N. Food Systems Summit.

"They signaled to the world that the U.S. does not intend to turn the clock back on scientific progress, but instead, advocate for modern technologies and practices that allow all agricultural production systems to achieve greater sustainability without compromising economic stability or the quality or diversity of diets.

"The U.S. animal food industry has proven that novel feed ingredients and technologies in the pipeline will be game-changers in reducing animal agriculture’s environmental footprint and through this coalition, we believe leaders have an opportunity to embrace them so the world can fully realize their environmental benefits.”
