Abstract: Agrifood sector features as a 7.8 trillion USD industry responsible for feeding the planet, employing 30% of the global workforce, using 40% of the earth’s surface as farmlands while generating 25% of greenhouse gas emissions. The rise in the price of agricultural inputs, high energy costs, radical climatic and environmental changes, extreme weather conditions, the risk of stagflation, and plastics pollution at seas which outweigh all aquatic & fish systems, are factors impacting food security that should be taken more as a future constant, rather than something extraordinary. Are we experiencing the beginning of the collapse of the current global food order, or other alternative models can be in sight?
