Description


Future Foods: Farming to Improve Health

Food is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Obesity, hunger, coronary heart disease and diabetes blight our health and societal wellbeing – as well as the progress that has been made to deliver affordable food to more and more people. This conference seeks to find out how agricultural science, farmers and the food industry can work together to resolve the economic and societal conflicts in food production.

Speaker include: Dr. Clive Black, Head of Research, Shore Capital;
Professor Susan Jebb, University of Oxford;
Dr. Judith Buttriss, British Nutrition Foundation;
Professor Ray A. Goldberg, Harvard Business School (by video)


What can agri-food businesses do to reverse this decline?

In essence, the commoditised, mass-production of sugars, saturated fats and various additives has reduced the cost of manufactured foods, many of low nutritional quality. Governments since the Second World War have contributed public money to reduce the costs of these raw materials.

Farmers and food companies are in the health business and need to work together to reduce the cost of high quality foods and to raise the cost of unhealthy foods. Otherwise we will continue to pay for the effects of poor diet rather than addressing the causes.
