Food. Everyone wants it. Everyone needs it.

Global population is expected to hit 9 billion by 2050. How will we feed that many hungry people responsibly?

I found this excellent video by Smithfield Foods on their take of feeding this hungry world and how we can achieve responsible and sustainable food.
