As part of their annual commitments, the institution acknowledges global leaders who work to ensure our food systems future are sustainable and resilient through their Arrell Global Food Innovation Award.
The first Arrell award was presented to a group of research experts who advanced the understanding of food production, processing, distribution, consumption and safety that made significant impact on human nutrition and community development.
