‘A brilliant book. It explores the complexities of the global food system and how we can fix the challenges. If you care about access to quality, affordable food then read this book’ – Heston Blumenthal
The third book in the critically acclaimed Wicked & Wise series offers a compelling analysis of the issue of food on an international scale.
From nutrition to world hunger to GM farming, what are the impacts of food and food issues on regional, political, cultural, business and social priorities? With 2 billion obese and 2 billion hungry, food is a key issue in the future development of the world’s population and its health.
As with every wicked and wise issue, it throws up significant moral, political and economic concerns when tackling how we will keep the world’s population nourished in decades to come.
