The issue of food sustainability is one of the most widespread hot topics and on which we must focus a lot to ensure future generations can satisfy their needs in the best possible way. As consumers, in fact, we have a duty to choose sustainable foods.

Sustainable nutrition

When we think of sustainable food, we are not referring only to environmental sustainability in the strict sense. Food sustainability is that which produces “right” and healthy foods not only for the environment, but also for those who produce them and those who consume them.

A sustainable food, in fact, is a nutritious food for people that has a low environmental impact in terms of use of soil and water resources used to produce it and also has an eye on the conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems, consequently also to the living conditions of workers. 

Sustainable diet: what to do?

Following a sustainable diet is not so difficult, especially for those who, like us, have at their disposal the great variety of products included in the Mediterranean diet. Perfect for a sustainable diet because it contains little meat, many legumes and cereals, combined with seasonal vegetables and fruit. To choose sustainable food products it is essential to read the labels correctly, to understand the origin and production of the products. To make sure you contribute to your health and the planet’s health with your food choices, Greenpeace has compiled a list of rules and advice to follow for a healthy and sustainable diet including: choosing locally sourced seasonal fruit and vegetables, reducing consumption prefer organic eggs from free-range hens, consume no more than 600 grams of dairy products per week, buy local fish, use vegetable proteins such as legumes, cereals and dried fruit.
