Publication Exposes Myths About Future World Food Needs

Telling Porkies: The Big Fat Lie About Doubling Food Production – .pdf (The Soil Association)

EXCERPT: The two figures on increasing global food production (50% by 2030 and doubling by 2050) are being widely used by key individuals in current agricultural policy debates. The figures are claimed to be the increases in food production that scientists say are needed to feed the world’s growing population. However, when the Soil Association looked into the reported sources for these figures, none of the sources actually stated that global food production needs to increase by 50% by 2030, or to double by 2050, to meet global demand.
