Food Systems at SLU

During 2021, the world makes a joint effort to discuss and plan for sustainable food systems. The food system is a complex web of activities involving the production, processing, transport, and consumption of food. On this theme page, we gather current information from SLU concerning research, knowledge, collaborations and dialogues about how we can achieve a sustainable global food system.

This illustration, created at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reveals ultrastructural morphology exhibited by the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically.
