On the way to a circular economy in food

The Taskforce Circular Economy in Food aims to prevent and reduce food waste and become an international frontrunner in the valorisation of agrifood residual streams. The Taskforce, an initiative by Wageningen University & Research, in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Sustainable Food Alliance, connects initiatives against food waste. It is leading the transition towards acceleration and the development of a circular economy. The Taskforce is currently composed of 25 members from the entire food supply chain, from SMEs to food multinationals, and supplemented with members from public and societal organisations.

Changing our fatally flawed food system by Tim Lang

In this talk, Tim Lang, professor of food policy at City University, London, briefly shares his personal journey into food policy - from psychologist to hill farmer to professor - and takes us through the reasons why he believes the current food system is fatally flawed, tracing the history of these. He reviews the key problems, the need for a complete change of mind set to tackle these away from a productionist approach with its successes and subsequent problems. He outlines a new direction for food policy that builds it around sustainable development, low impact farming systems and diets and low energy usage. (From Geoff Tansey @ Youtube)

More Peas, Please: Rethinking Meat and the Future of Protein

For thousands of years, we’ve relied on animals to turn plants into meat. Steaks, burgers, and chicken are staples of the American diet. The sustainable food movement that gave rise to grass-fed beef and free-range chicken is now going a step further—a big step further—with the introduction of plant-based, mass-market solutions to replace animal protein. Are these new protein sources poised to transform the global food system? Will laboratory-grown meat be the next solution that will sate the world’s appetite for animal protein? Or is there no substitute for a sizzling slab of beef for the true meat lover? (From The Aspen Institute @ Youtube)
