Food security has shot to the top of the agenda for governments and economists, but also investors. The war in Ukraine has highlighted the fragility of cross-border supply chains and countries’ dependence on food imports. More localised production is one potential answer, another is vertical integration to reduce a food company’s vulnerability to the whims of external sources.  

Listen to this Talking heads podcast with portfolio manager Agne Rackauskaite as she discusses the challenges with Andrew Craig, co-head Investment Insights Centre. Beyond the war in Ukraine, the challenges ahead range from population growth to climate change. Agne highlights the benefits of a shift to more resource-efficient plant-based foods, better packaging and sophisticated irrigation and harvest technologies – and the related investment opportunities.
