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 believe that food policy matters because it affects everyone. Food policy shapes who eats what, why and at what cost. It affects our nutrition and health, our livelihoods and communities, our cities and countryside, our nature and climate – now and for future generations. Food policy affects the people whose jobs involve growing, moving, processing and selling food.

Yet food policy is not doing its job. The world is facing major food system challenges, locally, in nations and globally; the huge burden of food poverty, malnutrition and diet-related disease; climate change and ecosystem degradation; and millions of people’s lives are affected by the often low paid and hazardous work involved in the food system.

Our vision is to see food policy addressing these challenges effectively and equitably to improve the wellbeing of people and planet.

Our work involves providing independent, inter-disciplinary evidence and education to enable food policy to be more effective and equitable.

We conduct research that recognises the interconnections in the food system and the voices and experiences of people across the food system. We are committed to advancing this integrated and inclusive approach to food policy because we believe it will more effectively improve nutrition and health, protect the planet and contribute to economic and social prosperity, equitably.  We are likewise dedicated to producing a larger and stronger generation of leaders, decision-makers and influencers in food policy through our educational programmes.

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. Here you can find out more about our work, our strategy and our history.

What’s new from the Centre

New FRC Briefing Paper
The FRC has published a new briefing paper - 'Feeding Britain: Food Security after Brexit'. Authored by Tim Lang, Tony Lewis, Terry Marsden & Erik Millstone the report takes stock of ‘food Brexit’ and argues that a hard Brexit or no-deal Brexit (and retreat to WTO rules) would imperil the sustainability and security of Britain’s food supply.

New book published by Centre for Food Policy Alumni
Farmers’ Cooperatives and Sustainable Food Systems in Europeby Centre Alumni Dr Raquel Ajates Gonzalez is published by Routledge as part of its Earthscan Food and Agriculture series. It provides and overview of the contemporary challenges to the farmer and food co-operative movements from sustainability.

Global food policy insight with Professor Corinna Hawkes

Research and scholarship

The Centre for Food Policy has built a tradition of policy research on key food issues since it began in 1994. This body of work is reflected in our formal academic publications and reports. See our Publications page for details. Our work covers the entire food system from farm to fork, paddock to plate, boat to throat. We are multi and inter-disciplinary. We conduct research that helps decision-makers make better policy choices to improve the food system and its outcomes.

We are interested in:

  • where policies exist, what they are, what they do or do not achieve, and for whom
  • how policies are developed and made and the factors that drive successful policy development
  • how decisions are made about food policy -- the governance of food
  • the interests that shape policy, make it work or fail, and how
  • how policies to improve the food system could be designed more effectively

Issues we have covered include: changes in governance; food inequalities; food’s impact on the environment and public health; the clash of policy perspectives at local, national, regional and global levels; the nature of skills in the modern food economy; policy differences in developing and developed countries; the role of the place of the local in the global food system, food skills/food literacy; food democracy public health and planning related to food.

Four key areas have been:

  • Cooking skills and food literacy. The work of the Centre has focussed on how food literacy can contribute to a broader knowledge of the food system and empower individuals and civil society to take action
  • Food poverty, food access and food banks. The research conducted at the Centre led us to be invited to give evidence to the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Hunger in the United Kingdom in 2014. Our work has been taken up and replicated by colleagues in Italy, Ireland and Australia.
  • Multi-level food system governance. For example, the Centre researched English local government urban food strategies as part of the EU 7th Framework Purefood Marie Curie project, 2010 to 2014.
  • Approaches to food system sustainability. Research by the Centre has shown that sustainability requires capacities not just for production but also for environmental and social capacities. Most recently, the Centre played a lead role in an EU seventh framework programme completed in 2016, Global and local food assessment: a multidimensional performance-based approach (GLAMUR), which assessed whether global or global food supply chains were more sustainable .

We work from the global to the local collaborating with academics, civil society and policy makers groups at all levels. The output of our research is published in peer-reviewed journals, reports prepared for policy makers and NGOs and books. As part of our research we also undertake consultancy projects, offer advice for policy makers and NGOs and contribute to institutional reports.

Current Projects
Projects different staff are involved with include the following:

  • Working in partnership with Flinders University Australia, a project on trust in food systems and on the UK ‘horsegate scandal’. This is part of a larger Australian Research Council (ARC) project which examines the links between policy makers, the food industry and the media in reporting media scares and scandals.
  • An intervention on cooking skills led by Queens University Belfast on the island of Ireland as part of the Safefood Irl, an all-island implementation body set up under the British-Irish Agreement with a general remit to promote awareness and knowledge of food safety and nutrition issues. This includes a review of cooking which informed an intervention with 140 adults in 4 different conditions to address which technologies are useful in developing food literacy.
  • The Global Nutrition Report, an annual stocktake of the state of global nutrition, including the policies designed to address it. Read the 2017 Global Nutrition Report: Nourishing the SDGs.
  • A project with the World Health Organization on political commitment to implementing nutrition policy, with the Australian National University
  • The policy component of the EAT-Lancet Commission on Healthy Diets from sustainable food systems.

PhD Research
Our PhD students cover a wide range of food policy topics. Current PhD students are exploring the role of advocacy in advancing food policy, policies on street food markets, parent perceptions of obesity policy in the UK, and analysis of the National Food Security Act in India. You can find out more about their research here.

While the Centre for Food Policy welcomes students from the food industry and engages in dialogue with food companies and other private businesses, the Centre does not accept industry money for research.

18 October 2018
London, UK 


October Food Thinkers seminar: 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.

There are daily headlines about the Government’s ‘next chapter’ in the plan to tackle obesity, as well as regular reports of children and working adult going hungry and older people sitting isolated, starved and malnourished in their homes. The public’s health, when it comes to food, has surely reached a crisis point?

This talk will consider the extent to which a focus on the ‘lived experience’ of food and eating could bring about change. Does research that investigates the realities of getting the right amount of the right kinds of food help in some way?

Wendy will contemplate the types of framework that can incorporate lived experience and envisage ‘who needs to do what’ if contemporary tales of obesity, hunger or malnutrition can truly be used beyond driving media headlines.

Drawing on her 20 years of research experience looking at the everyday food habits of children and adults in the UK, Wendy will link case studies from people who have participated in her research with theoretical frameworks about the importance of embedded routines and some cutting edge thinking from the field of public health.

Wendy's talk will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the audience.

This seminar is free to attend but tickets are allocated on a first come first served basis so please do register to secure your space.

Archived City Food Symposia


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.

Initiatives

Food Research Collaboration (FRC)

The Food Research Collaboration (FRC) is an initiative hosted by the Centre for Food Policy to facilitate joint working by academics and civil society organisations (CSOs) to improve the UK food system.

The FRC works with academics across disciplines and with civil CSOs across sectors to:

  • Encourage research that meets civil society needs
  • Share food evidence and thinking to improve coherence and “voice”
  • Encourage longer-lasting collaborations between and within academic departments and civil society organisations.

The FRC is was founded by Professor Tim Lang, who remains a Special Advisor. It is now chaired by Professor Corinna Hawkes. The Secretariat based at the Centre for Food Policy is staffed by Mary Atkinson and Victoria Schoen.

The FRC also organises the Centre for Food Policy’s Food Thinkers series. You can find out about all the other FRC activities and publications on works on its dedicated website.


Innovative Food Systems Teaching and Learning (IFSTAL)

Innovative Food Systems Teaching and Learning (IFSTAL) is a collaborative and cross-university food systems training programme. IFSTAL fosters transdisciplinary and systems thinking learning amongst postgraduate students (Masters and PhD level) from any discipline working on food issues to improve human, animal and environmental health.

The project brings together expertise and experience of scholars and existing postgraduate students across seven Higher Education institutions:

  • City University London
  • University of Oxford
  • University of Reading
  • University of Warwick
  • The Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH), comprising researchers from the Royal Veterinary College, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and the School of African and Oriental Studies.

IFSTAL also organises public events and works closely with a growing network of workplace partners from civil society organisations, government and industry. The Centre for Food Policy hosts IFSTAL staff, Rebecca Wells, led by Professor Martin Caraher.

For more details on IFSTAL, please visit IFSTAL’s dedicated website or contact: ifstal-city@city.ac.uk. City postgraduate students can self-enroll free of charge by searching for IFSTAL on Moodle.
