The Food Fight podcast by EIT Food
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Food consortium has recently launched a podcast series, The Food Fight, which examines the biggest challenges facing the food system, and the innovations and entrepreneurs looking to solve them.
Two episodes are available so far:
- Can we really feed 10 billion people by 2050? Corinna Hawkes of the Centre for Food Policy at City University London and Stephane Durand of Queen’s University Belfast talk about the challenges facing the food system.
- Spotlight: 3F BIO on alternative protein. Jim Laird of biotechnology startup 3F BIO discusses meat alternatives.
Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering just over 10 million square kilometres or 6.8% of the global land area, but it is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of around 740 million people or about 11% of the world's population. Its climate is heavily affected by warm Atlantic currents that temper winters and summers on much of the continent. In the European Union, farmers represent only 4.7% of the working population, yet manage nearly half of its land area.
