Bengaluru goes healthy! Turns to safer, sustainable food alternatives

A few weeks ago, a dozen Bengalureans were brainstorming at an informal meetup. They were discussing food but not of the foodie variety . It was about the safety and sustainability of the food we eat. They called themselves the Karnataka Alliance for Safe Food.

This meetup is just one indicator of Bengalureans’ engagement with safer foods.

Safe’ and `sustainable’ go hand in hand in the context of food.Naturopathy physician Dr Achyuthan Eswar believes safe or sustainable food is what you grow and eat to stay healthy and for the land (in which it grows) to be healthy .

By extension, it also means healthier livestock.
