New Agricultural Think Tank

Eight of the world’s leading foundations have launched AGree, an initiative to tackle long-term food policy issues.

AGree, a new initiative that will address and tackle food and agriculture policy issues, has recently launched with funding from the Ford Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and more. According to its site, AGree will “fill a crucial void in current agriculture research and discussions.” With initiative leaders ranging from former US Department of Agriculture secretaries to presidents of food companies, AGree hopes to create dialogue between diverse groups. “Our current food system is broken,” Gary Hirshberg, chairman and CEO of Stonyfield Farm says. “We must move beyond the political knee-jerk defense of traditional agriculture and face the need for change armed with real-world, scientific facts.”
