What will Asian food systems look like in 2030? There is no simple answer to this question, because Asia encompasses a complex mix of countries, divided by borders, policies, cultures, uneven development and other socioeconomic differences. There is no single “Asian” food system, and Asia cannot be analysed as a single entity.
Experts recognise that existing food systems will not remain stagnant as Asia urbanises and grows ever more populous. However, discussions around diet, food supply and food security often focus on Asia as a whole, rather than focusing on its different sub-regions and countries. This broad approach masks complex and often divergent policy and societal concerns, and it also risks strategic misalignment when preparing for the future. In light of this, how are companies and policymakers strategising for the future? How prepared are they to identify where divergence will remain, and where cities and countries will converge into similar food landscapes?
