The Rockefeller Foundation has pursued innovation in the agricultural sector, first in the United States, and later around the globe, based on a belief that food and prosperity are intrinsically linked. Over the decades, the Foundation’s approach has evolved, first focusing on efforts to increase the wealth of farmers, then on improving the nutritional content of food and increasing the yield of staple crops, followed by catalyzing a uniquely African Green Revolution. 

And now, the foundation is building on this work to address waste and loss in the food system, with the aim of demonstrating how we can reduce global food waste in half by 2030.
