The First Day in Good Food Summit in 2019

On August, 16th, the third Good Food Summit opened in Sangha Retreat in Suzhou. 

 

Qiu Jiaqiu, Founder of Real Image

Qiu Jiaqiu hosted the opening ceremony of the Good Food Summit in 2019.

 

Jian Yi, Director of CBCGDF Good Food Fund

Eddy Ram, General Manager of Sangha Retreat of IMC Group

Qiao Ling, President of China Region of Slow Food International

 

Jian Yi, Eddy and Qiao Ling delivered their welcome remarks.

 

Into the 2020s

 

Xiao Kuang, Group leader of Meat Atlas

 

After the opening remarks, Jian Yi, director of GGF, explained why we need to promote Good Food by talking about the UN estimation of a global population in 2050 of 10 billion.

 

“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world,” so what is the fulcrum of tackling global climate problems and biological crisis for average people? It is our food choices on the table.

 

The connotation of Good Food can be summarized by two words: good eating.  Good eating means our eating is good for our mental and physical health and for the world’s ecology.

 

Mr. Yi put forward that if humans don’t change their eating habits, even industrial farming will not fulfill huge consumption demands, let alone food security.

 

The top priority is to increase the proportion of plant-based meals in our diet. Mr. Yi clarified in the speech that Good Food doesn’t mean vegetarian diet. The purpose of promoting Good Food is not to make everyone a vegetarian. It is to point out the unsustainability of humans’ diets at the present and raise awareness of choosing a plant-based diet based on proved science.

 

At the end of the speech, Mr Jian put forward the concept of “Food Forward,” vote for “10000 Yuan For One Character” and the Chef 3.0 Project.

 

Then, Xiao Kuang, the head of the Good Food Data Group, shared an important statement from his team regarding the Meat Atlas of China and introduced the latest data on China's animal food supply and per capita consumption status. From this we learned: Shandong and Henan are the two provinces with the largest production of animal products, Guangdong is the province with the most consumption of animal products, whether it is urban or rural, there are more and more rich diseases, there are insufficient land resources to grow food, and animal feed production is quite dependent on overseas.

 

Dr. Brent Loken, Director of Science Translation and one of the writers of EAT-Lancet Report

Mr. Gu Yongqiang, president of HeYi and founder of Youku

 

Mr. Gu Yongqiang, founder of Youku, presided over the official release of the 2019 "EAT-Lancet Report" in China.

 

Mr. Brent Loken officially released the "EAT-Lancet Report" on behalf of the EAT-Lancet Sustainable Food System and Healthy Eating Committee. The Lancet aims to achieve a plant-based healthy diet for nearly 10 billion people by 2050. There are great differences between the current diet and recommended diet  around the world. Whether we can solve the problems of food, carbon emissions, resources, land, etc. based on nature and turn our goals into actions is a major challenge facing our generation. The "EAT-Lancet Report" brings together scientists from diverse backgrounds and different professional fields around the world to try to find an inclusive solution.

 

 Mr. Rafi Taherian, associate vice president of Yale Hospitality

Ms. Peggy Neu, president of Meatless Monday

 

As the head of Yale Catering, Vice President Rafi Taherian introduced how Yale University integrates sustainable development into student motivation and school operations.

 

The global president of the Meatless Monday project Ms Peggy Neu shared, "New trends and menu changes in the sustainable development of the food industry worldwide." Why choose no meat on Monday? Because Monday is the beginning of a new week, it is easier to fulfil the desire to change.

Ms. Gao Ying shared "Sustainable Food System and Circular Economy." The Food Project of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation creates an irresistible impetus for the circular economy of food, and the governments of London, New York, and Sao Paulo, Brazil launched policies related to sustainable food. It is expected that cities in China will join in the future.

Animal Welfare Forum

 

Ms. Hou Bing, Operating Representative of China’s Enterprises Program of Compassion in World Farming

 

At the Animal Welfare Forum, Ms. Hou Bing introduced the basic needs of animal survival, the living conditions of animals in an industrialized intensive farming environment, and the meaning of animal welfare. She also made a distinction between the focus of animal welfare and human welfare. The "European Egg Footprint Report" introduced at the meeting was refreshing. From a global perspective, high welfare animal feeding methods are forming a new trend.

 

In the round table discussion, the twelve guests were divided into two groups, and they discussed the two themes of "Why promote group meal companies and food companies to use animal welfare products?" and "Farm animal welfare and health."

 

From Left to Right

Mr. Zhou Zunguo, China’s chief representative of Compassion in World Farming

Mr. Brain Tan, Promoter of Sustainable diet

Ms. Shi Yan, CSA 

Ms. Zhao Xinhong, President of the Institute of Pig Industry Chain in Qinglian, Zhejiang

Mr. Han Taixin, Vice President of SANOVO EGG GROUP

 

During the discussion at Round Table 1, two representatives of entrepreneurs practicing animal welfare breeding, Ms. Zhao Xinhong and Mr. Han Taixin, described their exploration experience and related thinking in this field.

 

Dr. Shi Yan stated that during her PhD research, she has paid attention to the many topics discussed at this summit, which is another model of the food system. After understanding the new trend concept, she believes that what is more important is how to implement the concept and promote it, rather than simply doing academic research. Therefore, she chose to start a business in the agricultural field.

 

Chef Wang Feng admitted that in the cooking industry, there are not many peers who know plant-based diets and consumer demand is also restricting the chef's choice of ingredients. In terms of animal products, high-quality animal food is inseparable from animal welfare with high welfare.

During the Round Table 2 discussion, the host Ms. Hou Bing asked Ms. Li Dongli and Mr. Guo Xiushan to explain why their enterprises still insist on choosing welfare farming and adopting the highest production standards under the condition of high costs.

 

Mr. Guo said that welfare farming seems to be inefficient, but because it reduces the occurrence of animal diseases and the use of antibiotics, it actually improves efficiency to another reference standard.

 

During the Q&A session, experts called for more Chinese scientists to speak out in the field of academic research on animal welfare in the world. Traditional Chinese wisdom can also provide a unique perspective on this topic.

 

Youth Roundtable Forum

At the Youth Roundtable Forum in the evening, the youngest participant was 8 years old. He said: "Good Food should be sustainable food, for example, the seeds tomatoes can be grown, and foods that are not contaminated with pesticides should be healthier”.

 

Every bite of food shows our tenderness to the world. Every bite of food also demonstrates value to ourselves.
