Our global food system has helped shape societal preferences that has resulted in widespread consumer demand for unhealthy and unsustainable foods.

This means that on our current path, achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development goals is a distant dream. To reverse that, we need radical, accelerated transformation in our consumption habits – and impactful, scalable solutions to accelerate change across the whole of society.

The Food Culture Alliance is a strategic alliance of organisations working together to champion food culture’s role in accelerating the transformation of society’s food consumption. Hosted as an organisation by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), we work together to improve knowledge, strengthen collaboration, and drive local and global action on food culture.

We champion food culture and leverage the toolbox of strategies it provides to shift preferences and increase society’s demand for nutritious and sustainable foods.
