The global food system is becoming increasingly streamlined in the pursuit of economies of scale, to the point that 75 percent of the world’s calories come from only 12 crops and five animals.1 This streamlining has failed to provide global food and nutrition security. We denote this failure as the Nutritional Paradox, and characterize it through four distinct burdens caused by the way the food system currently works: hunger, obesity, micronutrient
deficiencies and the destruction of our planet.
