About City

Centre for Food Policy

The Centre for Food Policy is an interdisciplinary centre dedicated to improving food policy worldwide.

About

Welcome to the Centre for Food Policy - one of the very few places in the world dedicated to studying and influencing food policy.

We explore how the food system really works in practice

Welcome to the Centre for Food Policy – one of the very few places in the world dedicated to exploring how the food system really works in practice and what policies are needed to make it work effectively.

We exist to shape a food system that improves the health of people, society, the environment and the economy. What we eat, why we eat it and at what cost are questions of growing importance. Food policy affects the people whose jobs involve growing, moving, processing and selling food, and this COVID-19 pandemic is placing increased pressure on every part of the food system.

Here you can find out more about our workour strategy, our activities in 2019, our history and our Masters programme.

The COVID-19 pandemic reinforces that we need to make food policy work for everyone.

Over the past few weeks, the Centre for Food Policy has been reflecting on what to do to respond to this situation. What does it mean for us over the short, medium and long term? This question applies across the board – to the way we work, the way we do research, the way we teach, the way we communicate and engage and, of course, the way we think about how to configure the food system as a whole.

In this context, will the pandemic, I wonder, be taken as an opportunity to build a better, more resilient food system? The Centre for Food Policy believes that we have the responsibility to push on the opportunity to make things better. And if we are to build back better, we likewise have a responsibility to step back and think bigger and provide some answers for the longer-term. Our work involves providing independent, inter-disciplinary evidence and education to enable food policy to be more effective and equitable. We are now applying this in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, including through the following:

  • A short, UK-focused briefing from the Centre for Food Policy UK-initiative, the Food Research Collaboration, challenging the government to take a more coordinated approach to food policy in the wake of COVID-19, both in the short-term and over the longer term, building on a larger piece of work on “Who Makes Food Policy in England.”
  • Tracking the development of policies that affect food across government during COVID-19 in England, India and South Africa as part of our Food Research Collaboration and Sustainable and Healthy Food System (SHEFS) initiatives.
  • Ensuring that our existing and planned qualitative research projects achieve their original goals and are also used as an opportunity to capture our understanding of people’s lived experience of food and COVID-19, using digital research methods. As part of our Obesity Policy Research Unit, the Centre for Food Policy will be conducting a new project to understand how people’s practices and relationships to food have changed during COVID-19.
  • Applying for new funding now being made available for COVID-19 research in collaboration with partners.
  • Supervising student dissertations on the subject of COVID-19 and food policy; at least 50% of the dissertations will cover this topic for the 2019/20 cohort.
  • Actively responding to requests for evidence, knowledge and advice. You can read here the Centre for Food Policy response to the UK Environment Food and Rural Affairs committee enquiry COVID-19 and food supply.
  • Converting our Food Thinkers seminar series into webinars. Existing planned speakers will provide insights into the impact of COVID-19 on the subject they are talking about – the new threats and the new opportunities. See the first webinar here with Barbara Bray.
  • Reopening our distance learning program for our MSc in Food Policy to enable us to foster a larger and stronger generation of leaders, decision-makers and influencers in food policy to improve the food system in the wake of COVID-19.
  • Planning short “Continuing Professional Development” (CPD) courses on food policy and food systems to respond to the need for skills-building on how to make decisions about food policy and practice in the context of complexity as shown so clearly by COVID-19.

At the Centre we value being part of a broader community, working to make a difference. Wherever you are in the food system, I look forward to engaging on this important agenda.

Education

Multi-disciplinary postgraduate teaching

At the heart of our education programme is our commitment to advancing an integrated approach to food policy that takes account of the interconnections in the food system to enable nutrition, health, environmental, social and economic goals to be delivered more coherently.

Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and go onto work in governments, public institutions, civil society, business large and small, and the media. The aim is to equip these future decision-makers and influencers with a bigger picture understanding of what food policy is, how it works and why. We instill food systems thinking as a practical skill that can be used in the real world of food and food policy.

We educate students from all over the world. The fact that our students come from such a variety of backgrounds - many disciplines, many professions - means we learn from our students, and they learn from each other. Our courses draw extensively not just on academic experts but on leading practitioners in the field we study, ensuring that they remain at the forefront of current developments.

Our Food Policy MSc

Discover how to change the food system for the better on our unique MSc in Food Policy at City. The MSc is for people who care about food and want to gain a strong, critical grasp of food policy as a field of scholarship and practice. Full details can be found on the course pages.

Our Food Policy PhD / MPhil

Our PhD / MPhil in Food Policy at City educates students wanting to gain deeper insights into food policy - the way it is made, how it is designed, and its effects. It is an advanced route into academic work in food policy as well as other professions. It will help you acquire the skills to become a professional researcher; explore a topic of interest to you in depth, and contribute original work which will extend the current knowledge base to influence and change food policy. Full details can be found on the course pages.

Our PhD programme has a cohort of students studying a diversity of food policy  topics and actively engaged in the life of the Centre. It offers early and mid-career professionals the opportunity to situate detailed research within the bigger picture and engage with live policy issues.

Student Prizes

Each year the Worshipful Company of Cooks and the Worshipful Company of Farmers award prizes for outstanding dissertations. We are delighted to have their continued support, as are our students:

Winning the Worshipful Company of Cooks Food Policy Dissertation Prize was an honour. On a personal level, it meant a lot to me that the energy and effort I’d put into my dissertation had been recognised in such a way. I do not doubt that it has helped enormously with my professional development as well; I was awarded a fully-funded PhD at the University of Oxford to continue my masters project in 2016. The award of academic prizes makes up part of the selection criteria for prospective PhD candidates, so I genuinely feel that the Worshipful Company of Cooks Food Policy Dissertation Prize played a significant part in my success at being given a place here at Oxford.

Lauren Bandy, 2014 winner of the Worshipful Company of Cooks Dissertation Prize

I was utterly delighted to receive the Worshipful Company of Farmers Food Policy Dissertation Prize. As a mum of two kids who had not written an essay for nearly twenty years the MSc in Food Policy was very challenging for me, in many ways. I worked really hard and to have this recognised with the Prize was wonderful. Following my Masters course I decided to do a PhD, and I am sure that the Prize helped me win a scholarship.

Annie Connolly, 2014 winner of the Worshipful Company of Farmers Dissertation Prize

I was surprised and delighted to win the Worshipful Company of Cooks dissertation prize given the quality of candidates at the Centre of Food Policy. It was an honour to be invited to accept the award among so many exceptional talents from all areas of food. The prize is not only a recognition of my research into healthy food behaviours, but is a great reminder of the importance of integrating academic discussion with other industries and careers to bring about positive change across the food system and create opportunities for collaboration. The award has subsequently supported my ambition to further my career into food policy as I recently accepted a role as an advisor to the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Clara Widdeson, 2016 winner of the Worshipful Company of Cooks Dissertation Prize

I was delighted to win the Food Policy Dissertation Prize from the Worshipful Company of Farmers. To receive the award, I was invited to join a special luncheon where I had the opportunity to engage with British farmers in meaningful discussions on how my research in the sustainability of animal agriculture impacts their work on the ground as well as how they are collectively thinking about sustainability and health of British agriculture as a livery company. I can’t imagine an award for my research that would mean more to me than the recognition of farmers themselves, upon whom our whole food system depends.

Christiana Wyly, 2017 winner of the Worshipful Company of Farmers Dissertation Prize

Research

Our research aims to find solutions to a wide range of food policy challenges. It advances understanding of how to design integrated and inclusive food policies that tackle these challenges more effectively and more equitably. Conducting our analysis within a food systems framework, we  provide evidence on:

  1. How food systems are working - and how integrated policy can help them work better. What are the perceptions of how food systems work? What are the fundamentals that need to change to achieve food systems which support healthy diets, protect the planet, nurture social cohesion while also being economically viable? What are the conflicts that need to be overcome? What does policy need to do to address conflicts and drive needed changes? How can food policy and governance leverage the connections across food systems, governments and beyond to deliver healthy, equitable and environmentally sustainable food systems?
  2. How people experience food systems - and what can be learned from this to design more inclusive policies. What can we learn about how to address food-system challenges by listening to and involving the citizens and communities who experience these challenges? What, likewise, can we learn from better understanding the perspectives and perceptions of the people who manage and govern the system? What can policy do to build the opportunity, capacity and motivation to identify and tackle the challenges?
  3. How policies and governance are working  ̶  and what can be learned from approaches that have succeeded or failed. What policies already exist and how coherent are they? Are they being implemented effectively? If so, how? If not, why not? What has been or can be learned from previous efforts to develop, design and deliver integrated and inclusive food policies? Who is influencing decision-making and how? How does food governance work and how could it work more effectively?

You can explore our current research areas and PhD research below. An overview of research conducted between the founding of the Centre in 1994 and 2016 can be found in our report on the history of the Centre for Food Policy 1994-2016.

Cooking Skills

This programme of work has been ongoing since the Centre’s inception, led by Professor Martin Caraher. Current projects include:

Cooking skills on the Island of Ireland

This project, begun in 2016 and run in conjunction with Queens University Belfast, aims to provide a holistic understanding of cooking skills and food skills on the island of Ireland and their impact on individuals’ diets. The project is part of Safefood, an all-island implementation body set up under the Anglo-Irish Agreement and funded by the EU. Safefood has a general remit to promote awareness of food safety and nutrition issues on the island of Ireland. The project has already completed a review of cooking which informed an intervention with 140 adults in four different settings to identify which technologies are useful in developing food literacy. We are also working with NHS Scotland to advise on their ‘realist’ review of cooking initiatives and guidance for practitioners. For more information, contact programme lead Professor Martin Caraher. Publications from this project can be found here.

Developing a tool to measure cooking activity in Brazil

The Centre for Food Policy has partnered with the Universidade Federal de Alagoas and Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (both in Brazil) to investigate cooking skills in Brazil and the UK. The project is funded by a grant from the federal government of Brazil. It is based on a placement by Professora Manuela Mika Jomor at the Centre for Food Policy in 2017, with funding running until the end of 2019. Two  papers have been submitted examining the cross-cultural adaptions of questionnaires for use in a Brazilian context. For more information, contact project lead Professor Martin Caraher.

Guidance on cooking skills training

The Food Research Collaboration is working with the Sustainable Food Cities Network to develop practical guidance on cooking skills training, to be used  by community-based practitioners and commissioners. It will review and share the evidence needed to help ‘make the case’ to support cooking skills training, and will also help to find out ‘what works’ in terms of identifying and measuring course outcomes. The project is being supported by Professor Martin Caraher and a Project Team of local practitioners and commissioners, policy makers and academics. For more information, contact project lead Mary Atkinson or visit the Food Research Collaboration website here.

Review of community cooking policy

With colleagues from France, Spain and the US (universities of Lyons, San Sebastian, Michigan School of Public Health and Colorado State University), this project is set to explore the policies that guide community coking projects and initiatives. Although there is an emerging academic literature on the impact and outcome of community food initiatives, there has been little focus on the national policies that drive, or indeed hinder, this work. This work is funded through an EU 5th framework grant and has resulted in two summer schools on cooking. The policy work is being funded via a series of workshops, linked to the summer schools, where the key actors spend a couple of extra days teasing out the policy work. For more information, contact project lead Professor Martin Caraher.

Double duty actions for nutrition

Professor Corinna Hawkes is leading research for a paper, to be published in 2018/19 in the next Lancet series on nutrition, on the double burden of malnutrition. Working with colleagues at the International Food Policy Research Institute and elsewhere, the project involves assessing the implications of the design of existing undernutrition policies and interventions for obesity, and looking at how a more integrated approach could reduce the risk of undernutrition and obesity in a synergistic manner. An existing Policy Brief on Double Duty Actions, authored by Corinna Hawkes and published by the World Health Organization, can be found here.

Food policy and Brexit

This project is part of the current work programme of the Food Research Collaboration. Brexit will have profound effects on the UK’s food supply, and has prompted extensive analysis by academics and campaigning by civil society groups. The objective of this project is to help synthesise this activity, to ensure that food system sustainability, underpinned by integrative and inclusive governance, remains central to emerging food policy. It aims to achieve this both by generating research data and by bringing together organisations and scholars at work on the topic to share information and experience. One output is the series of Food Brexit Briefings on critical issues. The project is also working on a series of evidence papers that apply the integrative policy lens to some key food supply chains. These will draw together current research and collaboration with civil society partners to explore how the Brexit ‘unfrozen moment’ could enable more sustainable food policy. For more information, contact project lead Dr Rosalind Sharpe or visit the Food Research Collaboration website here.

Food poverty and ‘foodbanking’

This programme of work has been ongoing at the Centre since its inception, led by Professor Martin Caraher. The goal is to better understand the causes of and solutions to food poverty, including by engaging with people who experience food poverty. Current areas of work include:

Social supermarkets

In a joint project initiated in 2015 with Flinders University (Adelaide, Australia), Otago (New Zealand) and Curtin (Perth, Australia), we are exploring the appropriateness of social supermarkets as a solution to food poverty. In 2017 we also prepared a report on the feasibility of social supermarkets for the Department of Communities Northern Ireland. For more information, contact programme lead Professor Martin Caraher.

Food banks and food charities

This project, initiated in 2018 with Curtin University (Perth, Australia), explores the role of food banks in alleviating suffering and poverty among homeless and distressed populations. It is funded by a grant from HealthWay, the Western Australia Health Promotion Foundation, where Professor Caraher was visiting Healthway fellow for three months in 2016. This work emerges from that fellowship and the collaborations made during this time. So far, two papers have emerged, available here.

We are also working with the University of Ulster on the social cost of food charity –  in this project we compare the cost of a food bank emergency food parcel with that of a consensually agreed, nutritionally adequate diet. The objective is to identify the welfare costs of providing cash as opposed to charity, and establish a ‘social cost’ indicator. Part of the work will inform the Menu for Change programme in Scotland. The relationship and links between the retail sector and food charities is also being explored as part of a consortium with colleagues at the Universität Bielefeld (Germany), Helsinki University (Finland), Ryerson University (Canada), Deakin University (Australia) and the university of Dijon (France) . For more information, contact programme lead Professor Martin Caraher.

Integrated food policy

The aim of this programme of work, initiated in 2018, is to explore and communicate what integrated food policy means, and how it might be put into practice. It currently comprises three projects. For more information contact project lead Dr Kelly Parsons.

Towards an integrated UK food policy

As part of the current work programme of the Food Research Collaboration, this project asks the question: what governance might be needed for a more integrated and inclusive approach to food across the UK government? It is answering this question by investigating how food policy is currently made in the UK through interviews with policy makers and other stakeholders. The research is being conducted in collaboration with a Project Team comprising academic and civil society representatives from Deakin University (Australia); UK Health Forum; Wageningen University (the Netherlands); Which? and WWF.

Good Food Systems

This research explores how aspects of food systems would need to function in order to deliver multiple goals, e.g. nutrition and economic goals; health and sustainability. It includes a policy brief commissioned by the European Health Observatory in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Austria, to be published in late 2018.

Conflicts and connections in food policy

This project, funded by the Wellcome Trust (2018-2019), has a global scope. It aims to identify the connections in food systems and food policies where positive change could happen at multiple scales  ̶  from local and urban food policy integration to the global level. It also identifies the conflicts that need to be managed to enable change to happen. The results will be published as a series of briefing papers.

Obesity Policy Research Unit

The Centre for Food Policy leads the Food Policy and Systems workstream of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded Obesity Policy Research Unit (OPRU), a collaboration with University College London, the Institute for Fiscal Studies and other partners. The OPRU aims to provide the UK Department of Health and Social Care with novel research evidence to help reduce the prevalence and burden of childhood obesity. We are currently leading on two projects. For more information, contact project lead Dr Anna Isaacs.

Understanding engagement with Food Provisioning Environments (2018-20)

The aim of this project is to understand how parents living in deprivation experience and engage with food provisioning environments, and develop suggestions for how food environments might better be able to facilitate the consumption of nutritious foods. Another aim is to understand how current national policy related to the food provisioning environment (as reflected in elements of the national Childhood Obesity Plan) is experienced at the local level. We are conducting a series of ethnographic case studies around the England, beginning with Great Yarmouth in July and August 2018. The case studies will employ a variety of participatory methods, including photo-elicitation and ‘shop-along’ interviews.

How much marketing for foods that are high in fat, sugar, and salt are children exposed to? (2018-20)

This project aims to provide a child’s-eye view of exposure to marketing for foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt. We are using automatic, wearable cameras to record how much marketing secondary-school-aged children see throughout the day. We are starting with a feasibility study in Southwark, London, in autumn 2018.

Sustainable and Healthy Food Systems (SHEFS)

This project (2017-2021) is part of the Wellcome Trust funded Sustainable and Healthy Food Systems (SHEFS) research consortium. It aims to provide policy makers with novel, interdisciplinary research evidence to define policies that can deliver nutritious, healthy foods in a sustainable and equitable manner. The focus countries are India, South Africa and the UK. Working with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of KwaZulu-Natal, The Food Foundation, University College London and other partners, we lead the Policy workstream, with the objective of identifying innovative policy opportunities throughout the food system. This involves: Mapping existing food policies in the focus countries; Conducting ‘tracer studies’ of specific items to understand how the food system currently works and what policies could be transformative; Identifying citizen-based innovations that could be scaled up and out to advance sustainability and health. For more information, contact project lead Dr Laura Pereira.

Trust in food systems

Initiated in 2015, this project is being conducted in partnership with Flinders University, Australia, with the objective of exploring trust and communication around the UK ‘horsegate’ scandal. It investigates how the media and policy advocates communicate the nature of food system risk, and forms part of a larger project, funded by the Australian Research Council, examining the links between policy makers, the food industry and the media in reporting food scares and scandals. The work has led to a new project, Trust makers, breakers and brokers of the food system: do consumers agree?, which involves exploring the views of consumers  ̶  as major actors in the food system  ̶  on trust. This project is funded by a South Australian Government and Flinders University pump-priming grant. For more information, contact project lead Professor Martin Caraher. Publications from this project can be found here.

Our PhD research projects

Hannah Brinsden has done fieldwork on how policy advocacy works (and doesn’t work) in a diet and health context – seeing whether food policy change can and should pursue ‘evidence-based policy’.

Laurie Egger is looking at the impact of food assistance on food insecurity and nutrition in young children in the US and the UK. Her study aims to give a voice to deprived families who can help evaluate and inform policy.

Harvey Ells is looking at how different English street markets in the UK are reflected in wellbeing – whether markets’ role is the creation of retail-related social capital and what this means for policy..

Amanda McCloat is working on policy issues related to the place and location of Home Economics in the secondary school curriculum in the Republic of Ireland. Her focus is on why and how Home Economics education and its role in the curriculum is established while in areas such as the UK it has lost its focus.

Natalie Neumann is assessing policy’s role in supporting farmers’ markets in the UK, asking: are they reaching all levels of society and creating equality in access to locally farmed and nutritious food?

Food Thinkers Webinars

September Food Thinkers: Grappling with complex realities: designing food interventions to work in context?

With Meena Daivadanam, Uppsala University, Sweden

The degree to which interventions to influence the foods people eat are effective, typically depends on their fit to the context in which they are delivered and the population they target. Contexts modify the impact of interventions, and the target population - their food-related practices and other cultural and social norms and personal factors – influence if they adopt them or not. If they are to work, interventions – including policies – need to be designed based on an understanding of both. In her Food Thinkers talk, Dr Meena Daivadanam will provide examples of how interventions can be re-shaped and re-sized to be more effective in context and for the target population.  She will talk about how to filter the  hard-scientific evidence with numbers and percentages through appropriate context and target population lenses so interventions can be re-shaped and re-sized into different strategies - converting recommended servings of fruits and vegetables into local measures, or gamifying healthy or unhealthy foods. During this translation, there is always some loss in terms of details or accuracy and some gain in terms of fit or applicability. Meena will talk about the role of formative research in aiding this process: how are food decisions made; who makes them; what is good food? Obtaining these answers require the active participation of, or consultation with relevant stakeholders, including members of the target population. She will present some examples from research projects in India, Sweden and Sub-Saharan Africa (Uganda and South Africa), where contexts shaped the interventions and interventions were in turn re-shaped to fit the population it was intended for.

City Food Symposium 2020: Harnessing the Power of Youth to Transform Food Systems for Health and Sustainability

***DUE TO CONCERNS OVER THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***
City, University of London

In the midst of a climate emergency, and with poor diets established as the world’s leading cause of ill-health, the need for effective and equitable public policy to transform food systems for health and sustainability has never been greater.  At the same time, the voices of youth demanding change are getting louder. How can these voices be heard and included to drive the policy changes needed?

The 2020 City Food Symposium will bring together examples of youth engagement and youth-led initiatives in the UK and internationally that are aiming to make a difference – and which have already made a difference. It will feature a series of short talks from youth-led initiatives focused on health and sustainability, and workshops from young people and other experts on how to engage and collaborate with young advocates, exploring the challenges and opportunities this presents. It will also ask the question: how can young people engaged on either sustainability or health come together? In a new format for the City Food Symposium, the afternoon session will be followed by an evening keynote and panel debate on whether and how harnessing the power of youth can make a difference. Networking opportunities during lunch and prior to the evening session will provide a space for participants to engage with each other.

The 2020 City Food Symposium is an opportunity to find out more about engaging youth in policy, advocacy and research to effect meaningful change to food systems. All are welcome.

July Food Thinkers: Reframing the obesity narrative in the wake of COVID-19: placing people at the centre

With Johanna Ralston, CEO, World Obesity Federation

The complex interplay between obesity and food systems has been exacerbated by a narrative in which words and images misrepresent the drivers of obesity and fault those living with obesity for what is in reality a complex chronic disease shaped in part in response to the obesogenic environment. The role of lived experience has been overlooked in supporting policies, and the differences across geographies have been poorly understood. This session will look at narratives of obesity and propose a better, more accurate story that places people at the centre, using words and images that are translatable across cultures and languages, framed around an inter-related set of approaches rather than single, siloed solutions. This approach requires alignment across sectors, with common language on the environmental, social, and commercial determinants of obesity.  As obesity has been shown to be an independent risk factor for COVID-19 complications, and as concerns grow about the impact of COVID and extended lockdowns on unhealthy weight, the right framing is of critical importance as a part of “building back better.”

June Food Thinkers: Considering the relationship between food, precarity and poverty in public health

With Dr Claire Thompson, University of Hertfordshire

The notion of precarity is increasingly relevant to health. For public health and food policy, this can be framed as precarity around the social determinants of health leading to particular subjectivities and materialities of poverty and deprivation. In which case, the lived experiences of dietary health inequalities, including food poverty, the use of food banks, and interactions with obesogenic food environments, can be understood as symptomatic of this precarity.  

The coronavirus pandemic has amplified precarity around the social determinants of health for vulnerable groups. The economic shock resulting from measures to contain the spread of the virus has created further vulnerability and precarity among people from a gradient of socioeconomic groups that are now struggling to cope. This is very much apparent in the difficulty experienced by people from a range of backgrounds, but most especially those on low incomes, in feeding themselves and their families in a consistent, socially acceptable, and healthy way during the lockdown.

May 2020 Food Thinkers: Delivering an emergency food service to people in London during the COVID-19 pandemic

With Kemi Akinola,Brixton People’s Kitchen and Be Enriched

Kemi Akinola spoke about Be Enriched and Brixton People's Kitchen. The two organisations have joined forces due to COVID-19 to deliver an emergency food service across two boroughs for people not clearly able to access the national service.

She discussed how the need for the service and people accessing it have been changing and continue to change, how COVID-19 advice and regulations affect certain groups more than others as well as the knock on effects not immediately seen. She shared information about a mobile greengrocer created as a response to observations of the lack of availability of fresh fruit and vegetables in certain areas of Wandsworth, and how recent work on the COVID-19 emergency project is influencing how this venture is going to be delivered.

May 2020 Food Thinkers: Women in the food business: redesigning food companies for sustainable nutrition and better livelihoods

With Barbara Bray MBE, Alo Solutions Ltd

Food industry consultant Barbara Bray presented a vision for food businesses for the future, a future where businesses prioritise sustainable nutrition, environmental eating and transparent supply chains. She gave examples of companies who already have a focus on sustainable nutrition and of the work she now does supporting companies to take a healthier, more sustainable way.

Given the significant stress the current food system is now under as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Barbara also described what impact the on-going situation could have on our food supply and how businesses may adapt.

February 2020 Food Thinkers: Once Brexit is done, what happens to food? An international trade law perspective.

With Professor Fiona Smith, University of Leeds

The UK is scheduled to depart from the EU on January 31 2020. 11 days later, at the February Food Thinkers event, Professor Fiona Smith talked about the immediate and longer-term implications on trade law and how this will impact on the availability and cost of different types of food in the UK. An expert in Brexit and Trade, Professor Smith used her background in international trade law to give us a better understanding of some of the implications that the Brexit deal and subsequent negotiations will have upon what food is available, and for whom, in a post-Brexit UK.

January 2020 Food thinkers: Looking under the radar: Why understanding food supply chains is so vital for redesigning the food system.

With Lisa Jack

Food supply chains are a core component of modern food systems. While on the surface such chains involve a straightforward process of getting food from farm to fork, these chains deeply embed practices involved in day-to-day transactions which operate under the radar. Understanding these practices – which operate in food supply chains around the world - is vital because their impact is to fix food systems into patterns that are very difficult to change. They thus have major implications for our ability to transform food systems. Most of these deeply embedded, day-to-day practices are legal and go unquestioned, such as discounts and commercial income. Just occasionally, they stray over the line into fraud, and then come to light. Underneath all of them is the attitude that retailers and consumers want prices that come from hard trading - but the service and quality that come from long term relationships.

In this talk, Professor Jack will examine some of these practices and attitudes, and ask what it would take to fundamentally transform a food system. She will show that the answer lies in questioning a peculiar feature of the industry maintained by these practices: on the one side, very narrow margins for profit and error; on the other, very wide margins for waste, shelf-life and choice, reflecting where power and inequality lie in the system. To achieve a fair and sustainable system providing affordable and nutritious food for all, Professor Jack will argue that we need to think about systems that re-balance marginal thinking and transform the system from the middle outwards.

March Food Thinkers: City Region Food Systems: What, Why, How?

With Michael Hamm

This Food Thinkers event discussed the "City Region Food Systems" approach to moving the global food system towards greater sustainability and equity. Climate change, water stress, population growth, and continued urbanization are the challenges that threaten to negatively impact global food security.

In this presentation, Professor Hamm sought to shine a light on the opportunities of thinking more regionally about our food system, within a global context. That is, to consider strategies that maximize the sustainable production of food on our plates within a region, while also sourcing foods outside the region that are produced with a similar set of embedded characteristics. In the London area (and across England) this would mean a significant increase in fruit and vegetable production throughout the year. Can this be done in a way that reduces the carbon footprint of the food supply? Can this be done in a way that reduces other environmental impacts of the food system – such as phosphorus and nitrogen cycles?

February Food Thinkers: A Sustainable Future for Food, Health and Planet?

With Dr Sandro Demaio (CEO of EAT), Prof Corinna Hawkes (Director, Centre for Food Policy & EAT-Lancet Commissioner, Prof Tim Lang (Centre for Food Policy, EAT-Lancet Commissioner), Baroness Rosie Boycott (journalist & food campaigner) and Helen Browning (Chief Executive, Soil Association & FFC Commissioner). Chair: Sue Pritchard (Director of the RSA Food, Farming & Countryside Commission).

Can we feed a future population of 10 billion people a healthy diet within planetary boundaries?

To answer this question, EAT gathered 37 of the planet’s foremost experts who, for the first time ever, propose scientific targets for what constitutes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system – as published in the EAT-Lancet ‘Food in the Anthropocene’ report.

We co-hosted our February Food Thinkers with the RSA Food, Farming & Countryside Commission to convene EAT-Lancet Commissioners, RSA Food, Farming & Countryside Commissioners and public health experts to discuss and debate the findings of the report and the actions required for systemic change.

January Food Thinkers: Bittersweet Brexit - where are we heading with our food and farming?

With Charlie Clutterbuck

With Brexit events moving so quickly, this talk will be a moving feast. The context is that UK food and farming could change more now and more quickly than in the last 70 years. Brexit is a moment of food system restructuring.

Charlie’s talk will focus on the role of human labour in farm and food provision, asking: (1) Why did it barely feature in UK politics of food when it is so central to how the food system actually works? (2) What does this say about UK food policy debate? (3) Was the silence about food labour part of what delivered the 2016 Brexit referendum vote? (4) What are the food labour issues which now need to be addressed, whatever happens in Brexit politics? (5) How can we make labour more central to our understanding of the transition to a sustainable food system?

Q&A and discussion will then be opened to the audience.

Food Thinkers October 2018: Can public health solve obesity, hunger and malnutrition by focusing on the lived experience of food and eating?

With guest speaker Professor Wendy Wills; a sociologist, nutritionist and Professor of Food and Public Health at the University of Hertfordshire, where she is the Director of the Centre for Research in Public Health and Community Care.

This talk considered the extent to which a focus on the ‘lived experience’ of food and eating could bring about change in public health. Wendy proposed types of framework that can incorporate lived experience and envisaged ‘who needs to do what’ if contemporary tales of obesity, hunger or malnutrition can truly be used beyond driving media headlines.

City Food Symposia

The 2019 City Food Policy Symposium - How to develop and deliver a national food policy: a global perspective

30 April 2019
London, UK

The 2019 City Food Policy Symposium explored what lessons have been learned about the development and delivery of national food policies and the benefits and pitfalls of taking an inclusive and integrated approach. See the full programme.

In the morning session, participants heard from speakers around the world on global efforts to develop and deliver integrated approaches to food policy at a national and city level.

Presentations

Listen to Dr Kelly Parsons’ presentation, ‘How ready is England for a national food policy?’, delivered at the 2019 City Food Symposium.”

In this video, Olivier de Schutter outlines his hopes for a Common Food Policy for the EU:

In the following video Anna-Karin Quetel sets out the key concepts behind the National Food Strategy for Sweden, implemented in 2017:

Watch Cecilia Rocha talk about the pioneering Food and Nutrition Security Policy introduced in Brazil’s city of Belo Horizonte in 1993:

Biraj Patnaik talks about India’s National Food Security Act (also known as the Right to Food Act), which was written into Indian law in 2013:

In smaller workshop groups in the afternoon, participants worked together to devise strategies and tactics for taking an inclusive approach to moving forward.

  • The workshops used methods that fostered shared learning to develop new insights to inform the development and delivery of national food policies anywhere in the world.
  • They were also an opportunity to test and refine workshopping methods to be used to facilitate public participation in the process of developing national food policies.
  • The recommendations stemming from the workshops have, along with the learnings from the rest of the Symposium, been included in the forthcoming Symposium Report on “How to develop and deliver a national food policy: a global perspective.”

The day concluded with a panel discussion between experts from across the world of food to discuss the question of developing and delivering a national food policy here in England.


City Food Symposium 2018: Connecting people with food policy

The 2018 City Food Policy Symposium explored how gathering evidence of lived experiences of food challenges - how citizens and communities experience, explain and respond to them - can inform more effective, equitable and empowering policy solutions.

Participants, including guests from government, NGOs, research, business and those in civil society discussed why evidence of experiences is important in crafting effective policy solutions to problems disproportionately affecting marginalised populations, such as food insecurity; obesity, diet-related ill health and malnutrition; food related environmental degradation; and precarious work.

The morning sessions included short presentations by experts concerned with different aspects of food – from obesity to food insecurity, the informal food economy to farming - about how these inclusive approaches can make food policy and food systems more effective and equitable.  We learnt from experiences in the UK and internationally, from countries rich and poor.

  • The afternoon workshops featured the process of gathering and translating evidence of lived experience from:
  • the public (with a focus on developing a national food policy for the UK post-Brexit)
  • marginalised groups (with a focus on how to effectively address food poverty, malnutrition, obesity and diet-related diseases, nationally and internationally)
  • the food system workforce (with a focus on creating more inclusive food economies for farmers and labour on the land, nationally and internationally).

The output of the symposium will be a report bringing together a shared understanding of the value of gathering evidence of lived experiences and how this evidence can be most effectively translated into transformative action.
