As a global society, the world population will peak at 9 billion in a few decades. Along with a growing population comes the pressing need to increase our global food resources adequately and sustainably. It is not only critical to ensure food security, but also to ensure that the available food is nutritious.

On October 1, 2012, over 120 esteemed guests convened in Jakarta, Indonesia, for DuPont’s latest international debate discussion, The Global Collaboratory on Food. Organized independently by BBC World News, the debate focused on the critical collaborations between governments, scientists, and businesses to ensure a secure and nutritious supply of food for Indonesia.
Jim Borel, Executive Vice President of DuPont, delivered introductory keynote remarks, while moderator and host of the DuPont-sponsored Horizons television series, Adam Shaw, moderated the remainder of the night’s compelling discussion. Panelists, including Dr. Bayu Krisnamurthi, Indonesia’s Vice Minister of Trade, Brian Jones, Regional President, Asia Pacific, DuPont Nutrition & Health, and Adhi Siswaja Lukman, Chairman of Indonesian Food & Beverage Association, debated subjects such as the causes and extent of Indonesia’s nutrition gap, the importance of importing and exporting foods, collaboration and local solutions, and the most effective way forward to address challenges related to food security and nutrition in the next decade.
The event also showcased the latest DuPont Stories of Inclusive Innovation, which will air during the commercial breaks of Horizons on BBC World News. These documentary-style commercials feature DuPont’s scientific capabilities and collaborations in action and are developed by OgilvyEntertainment in collaboration with DuPont, TwoFour Productions and key DuPont partners.
