Our global food system is currently challenged by climate change, a growing population, the ongoing loss of biodiversity, and declining resources. Current food and agricultural production and technologies will not be considered sustainable in the long term. Food security collectively involves the sustainable production of high-quality food and the valorisation of by-products. Over the last decade, applications of innovative green technologies have been researched in order to find solutions that can potentially enhance sustainability in our food system. The main challenge is to define the right application that will efficiently fulfil the objective of being environmentally sustainable and produce quality food products. Today, manufacturers are ever more focused on sustainability objectives, reducing waste and embracing environmental initiatives as these become ever more fundamental factors for growth and global competitiveness strategy. In this Special Issue, we would like to see more contributions on what sustainable food systems have the potential to be, and how the application of green technologies could support, influence, and change food practices.
