Unilever, being one of the world's largest consumer goods companies, plays a big role in enabling and realizing food products better for the people and planet. The great power that Unilever has in the market also brings challenges. Food scarcity is growing rapidly, and climate conflicts are accelerating. As a major player in the industry, how do you facilitate the shift of suppliers toward more sustainable agriculture? How do you deal with regulatory and financial challenges: who is incentivized?
