Cultivating Healthy Food Systems

This event has been cancelled. If you have any questions, please contact the event planner directly.



This conference will discuss parallels between what is considered a healthy diet and the sustainable practice of food production and consumption. Day 1 will focus on current agri-food practice on a global scale, but with implications for local economies. It will explore current eating habits and how they relate to retailing, processing and farming. Idealised food systems is the topic for Day 2, discussing what we hope to achieve and how we realistically move towards better practice. Day 3 will explore current policy-driven approaches to achieving change. It will explore the role and scope of policies and research needed to underpin initiatives across the food supply chain and identify multidisciplinary approaches to achieving these objectives.
