We consume three meals on average in a day which are constituted by several ingredients. The production of these food items has a lasting impact on factors such as the soil, water, and air and human and animal factors such as their rights, welfare, and even livelihood. However, when making food-related decisions, we are most likely to be alienated from this impact. As consumers, we also don’t believe we can have a positive impact created by our individual consumption habits. This gap creates a great opportunity for services that can pave the path for collective action for positive change.
A self-curated anti-rival Food Suffering and Wellbeing Index (FSWI) aims to create a comprehensive comparison on the social and environmental variables that have been positively or negatively impacted in the food supply chain to help consumers make an informed decision. The goal of FSWI is to encourage more sustainable decision making and not induce further climate anxiety.
