MyFood30 is all about hearing young people’s voices on the future of our agri-food systems and making sure they are supported to maximise their contribution towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It is for this reason that the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries’ transformation... Read more
