Meet the 2018 Agents of Change

It’s no secret that the world of food is changing. Today, more than ever, what we eat plays a role in ensuring a healthier, more sustainable future for people and the planet. This is a future in which nutrition professionals, environmental experts, farmers, chefs, public health authorities, food retailers and food companies must work together to drive transformational change.

Unilever launched the Agents of Change program in 2015, celebrating the innovators who are improving health and wellbeing through food and healthy eating. This year, we’re proud to partner with a diverse, inspiring group of dietitians who—like Unilever—are guided by a vision of food that tastes good, does good and doesn’t cost the earth.

Through Unilever’s Agents of Change work, as well as other partnerships, our product innovations, our approaches to sourcing responsibly, and our consumer outreach, we’re working to secure a healthier, more sustainable future for all. We know there’s work to be done. We believe dietitians are uniquely suited to be powerful Agents of Change, because they touch people’s lives in so many ways. A single recipe, a practical tip, even a beautiful Instagram photo, can spark something small that over time can add up to a big change.
