Abstract Industrialized food production has failed to meet the longer-term needs of societies and ecosystems. A major limitation of industrialized food production is that it is designed so that products are made, used, and disposed of, with limited attention to the ecological impacts associated with each of these stages of production. This paper proposes redesigning food production in line with three principles of Circular Economy: only use materials that can be reused, make use of renewable energy, and celebrate local diversity by taking inspiration from nature and cultures.
