Oxfam report: The Food Transformation
Oxfam have published a new report entitled ‘The Food Transformation’. This report, written by Brook Lyndhurst, examines the global food system and the social and environmental injustices inherent in it, and at the potential of consumer action to effect change.
It looks at four different scenarios involving consumer action, and calculates the scale of the positive social and environmental impacts that would result. Each of the scenarios focuses on one of the following areas: reducing food waste; supporting fair trade; being energy efficient; eating less meat.
