The Sustainable Food System (SFS) program by Eagmark Online Learning Campus (OLC) offers e-learning modules aimed at providing you with the expertise and tools necessary to address complex food system challenges using systems thinking. This online course empowers you to shape resilient food systems capable of providing equitable nourishment to a growing global population, even in challenging conditions. Throughout the program, participants delve into various aspects of creating a sustainable future for food systems, exploring the necessary changes at micro-, meso-, and macro-levels to revolutionize food production, processing, distribution and consumption. With guidance from Eagmark OLC’s experienced faculty, participants discover innovative business models, technologies, and processes to integrate sustainability into food supply chains, while also developing actionable strategies to lead this transformation within their own organizations or sectors. By the course’s conclusion, participants consolidate their learning through multiple sessions and content, ultimately crafting their own Action Plan to spearhead sustainability initiatives tailored to their contexts.

Agricultural professionals acquire practical tools to deliver nutritious, affordable, and sustainable food for all. Professionals in manufacturing, retail, wholesale, and service sectors, including supply chain and procurement professionals, food and beverage managers, restaurateurs, and aspiring entrepreneurs, gain insights into scalable models for building resilient food systems. Additionally, analysts, policymakers, consultants, and lobbyists in finance, marketing, and public relations learn to effectively advocate for sustainable food production, processing, and consumption.

The course emphasizes the importance of systems thinking and adopting a sustainable food systems approach to enhance project and policy design for the development and transformation of sustainable food systems.
