The technological link between nature, man and food
Our species is sicker than it has ever been – we are literally killing ourselves with how we eat. Most modern dietary approaches are not much help in navigating this flawed system nor satisfy our nutritional, ethical, and environmental needs. I believe we MUST look to our 3.5 million year long dietary past and appreciate the role technology played in making our foods safe and nutritious. Lessons from the diets that literally built us as a species are the keys to creating a healthy, sustainable and ethical diet for the future.
FRUTO is a PLATFORM of engagement and mobilization, who goal is to discuss food, and today´s problems and challenges concerning it, and to propose solutions for years to come. FRUTO is born of the need to carry a message to the world. A message that man is the greatest link between nature and cuisine. A message for reorganization and resolution of the problems involving the global food. One of its initiatives is the seminar FRUTO, an international event held annually in São Paulo, created by chef Alex Atala and the cultural producer Felipe Ribenboim, and supported by the ATÁ Institute.
