Regeneratively produced ingredients are those produced in ways that have positive outcomes for nature, such as healthy soils and increased biodiversity . Farmers use practices that make sense for their local context, drawing inspiration from schools of thought such as permaculture or agroecology. Example : producing cow 's milk through practices such as controlled intensive grazing and silvopastoralism, in which cows graze among trees, helps achieve regenerative outcomes by improving soil health and sequestering soil carbon .
Mimicking migratory herds, cattle congregate in areas of the pasture where they benefit from a diverse diet, trample plant matter E Commerce Photo Editing and nutrients from their manure and urine, and move frequently, allowing the pasture to regenerate . Circular food design the full potential of the four design keys is realized when combined. These keys can be combined both within a single product and across entire product portfolios. Exactly how they are combined is determined by the needs of the ecosystems from which the ingredients are sourced . To illustrate the potential of combining the keys, we are going to give an example of a conceptual product of a positive future for nature: silvo is a line of cheeses made from the food products of a walnut silvopastoral system . In silvo's walnut orchards, dairy cattle graze among the trees in a controlled intensive grazing system.
By producing lower impact ingredients and regeneratively produced ingredients within the same farming system , and by using nuts and dairy milk in a line of cheese products, higher profits can be achieved . Regeneratively produced cow and walnut milk that could be made by a company like silvo to produce cheese has the potential to be carbon neutral. Conclusions the model aims to be a tool to structure and combine the different perspectives and phases of innovation in the food system to be more interactive, creative and successful in the development of healthy and sustainable food .
