The Food Sustainability Media Award aims to recognize the work of professional journalists and emerging talent from all over the world for excellence in reporting and communicating issues related to food security, sustainability, agriculture and nutrition.


The global food system faces unprecedented challenges. Poverty, over-consumption, growing population and climate change are some of the most critical threats to our Planet. Now, more than ever, there is a pressing need to shed light on some of the paradoxes affecting our food system.

Hunger & Obesity – for every undernourished person there are now two obese or overweight people in the world;

Food & Fuel – a third of agricultural cereal crops are used to produce animal feed or biofuels despite hunger and malnutrition;

Waste & Starvation – 1.3 billion tons of edible food is wasted every day, four times the amount needed to feed the 795 million undernourished people around the world.

Food sustainability is a global concern, and we believe the media has a key role to play. By informing and shedding light on today’s food paradoxes, the media at large can engage consumers so that – in turn – they can contribute to the creation of a more equitable and sustainable future, starting from their food choices.

The Food Sustainability Media Award aims to recognize the work of professional journalists and emerging talent from all over the world for excellence in reporting and communicating issues related to food security, sustainability, agriculture and nutrition.
