The environmental, economic, and social costs of food aren’t included in the price. Stakeholders must account for them to limit agriculture’s adverse effects and increase its positive impact.
Major shrimp importers are demanding sustainability and traceability. To thrive in the coming decade, producers must change the way they do business.
Plastics regeneration technologies such as pyrolysis offer economically viable ways to combat this pressing environmental challenge.
