Climate change is a major issue affecting all the food systems. Under changing climatic conditions, food systems should be managed attentively in order to sustain economical, social and environmental stability. Sustainable food systems are models developed to improve and enhance the existing food systems for numerous countries including Turkey. Regarding the environmental and economical impacts of the current food systems in Turkey, a new optimized solution should be developed in order to mitigate the environmental impacts. Within this regard, this study aims to adress the key features of “Turkish Diet” in terms of sustainability and to compare Turkish patterns with sustainable models as “Mediteranian Diet” and also to offer an action plan to develop a new sustainable food system.
