The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition is a center for multidisciplinary thought and proposals. It was founded with the objective of:
- paying close attention to society’s current and emerging needs regarding major themes relating to food and nutrition;
- identifying the fundamental themes regarding people, the environment, science and economics in our current society;
- collecting and analyzing the most advanced experience, knowledge and competencies available in the world;
- developing proposals and recommendations about food and nutrition and making them available to all the major opinion leaders and decision makers in order to promote better quality of life and widespread and sustainable wellbeing for all people.
