Researchers at the University of Guelph are exploring how we can achieve a more sustainable, safe and trusted food system for #ZeroHunger. Check out a few of them below that we are highlighting this week for World Food Day. 
If everyone on the planet adopted a diet of what 'we should eat' we would run out of land and exceed acceptable greenhouse gas emissions for our life on earth. Not to worry though, researchers are already working on the problem!​
Up to 40% of all picked fruit can be lost due to bruising and rotting BEFORE reaching supermarket shelves. For a #ZeroHunger future, researchers are looking for ways to delay fruit’s natural degradation process. For this problem, hexanal may be the solution.
Researchers at the University of Guelph are taking an in-depth and integrative approach to understanding ecosystem services from agricultural production.

DNA barcoding, a novel tool used to rapidly gathering data on diversity, and how it may change over time. This can help us to understand how biodiversity varies in relation to both natural and human-made influences.
