Nutrition is one of the most important areas for the great transformation. So how can a shift towards a sustainable food system be achieved? The present "Zukunftsimpuls" addresses this question – based on more than ten years of research on sustainable nutrition at the Wuppertal Institute. The paper focuses on public catering, because even small changes – for example in the choice of ingredients – have a huge impact here. With appropriate policy frameworks, public catering can serve as an easily accessible place for consumers to experience sustainable food and at the same time be a reliable buyer of biodiversity and climate-friendly food from farmers. However, other actors are also needed for a transformation of the food system: The "Zukunftsimpuls" addresses politics, (agricultural) industry, science and every individual – because the transformation of the food system is a task for the entire society.
