Why ACES?

We know food. We know how food systems work. We can engage food producers, processors, distributors,
policy makers, and consumers to improve food system performance.

We are interdisciplinary by nature—focused on the science of sustainable food and agriculture. ACES is
invested in food security.

Extension ensures that farmers, workers, and consumers have access to scientific discoveries that
can make them healthier, more prosperous, and more able to achieve their potential.

We have demonstrated the ability to help secure abundant food. Lessons learned, proven technology,
and new innovation can enhance global food security.
