Eat For Good

Change the World, Change your Plate.

Discover the "Eat for Good" campaign by Knorr, dedicated to inspiring individuals to make choices that benefit both themselves and the planet. At NextGen Farms, we wholeheartedly support this mission and have actively contributed by establishing the 'Eat for Good' garden at the last three Jollof Festivals in Lagos and Abuja.

Solving a Critical Issue

The campaign addresses the pressing need to encourage farmers in Africa to diversify their crops, breaking free from the cycle of monotonous cultivation. Research reveals that continuous monocropping depletes soil quality, consumes excessive natural resources, and diminishes essential nutrients. This practice has led to the disappearance of half of the world’s most fertile soil in the past 150 years. By transforming our agricultural practices, we can reclaim our planet’s productivity and ensure a sustainable future.

The Future 50 Foods Initiative

Knorr, in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Dr. Adam Drewnowski, has introduced the Future 50 Foods, a curated selection of global ingredients chosen with a focus on enhancing human health and ecological balance. Prioritizing plant-based options, this initiative encourages individuals to make choices that positively impact the environment.

Our Commitment to Food Security

At NextGen Farms, we are committed to tackling the food security challenge, and we firmly believe that the “Eat for Good” campaign will play a pivotal role in achieving this goal.

Key Insights

Only a limited selection of 12 plants and five animals constitute 75% of global food consumption. Knorr envisions a shift towards a more diverse, sustainable diet for both personal and planetary well-being.

Tailored for Africa

While the Future 50 Foods list offers valuable insights from an international perspective, it’s crucial to recognize that not all items are easily accessible or cultivable in Africa. During the creation of the Eat for Good garden, we emphasized showcasing foods from the list that can be grown and accessed right here in Nigeria. These include:
Spinach (locally known as Malabar spinach and Amunututu), Kale, Beet greens, Pak Choi, Red cabbage, Moringa, Bambara groundnut, Cowpeas, Lentils, Soybeans, Cacti, Amaranth, Millet, Fonio (Acha), Okra, Flax seeds, Sesame seeds

Embracing Change, One Step at a Time

Remember, significant transformations begin with small, purposeful actions. Join us in championing the Future 50 Foods movement and be part of the journey towards a more sustainable and secure future for agriculture in Africa.
