The Future of Food Production A special report on the future of food production with insights and perspectives from producers around the globe. Lisa Lupo From the farm through production to retail, today’s food supply chain is truly a global system. Throughout the next year, QA will be looking at food from an international perspective. In this issue, we start at the source to take a look at farming around the world: the challenges being faced, the innovation being developed, and the downstream impact of it all. To gain a perspective outside that of U.S.-based QA magazine, Editor Lisa Lupo joined with participants from around the globe at the Bayer-sponsored Future of Farming Dialog in Monheim, Germany, in September, from which this feature is primarily derived.
