This book demonstrates the need for a new food policy to deal with the challenges to the global food system posed by globalisation, urbanisation, technical change and industrialisation. Comprising a series of papers written by experts from Denmark, Italy, the UK and the US, it points out that the food system is no longer about moving basic staples from farm to plate; nor is it concerned mainly with famine and food insecurity. Food policy, the contributors suggest, now needs to encompass issues such as obesity, food safety, and competition policy in the retail sector. The book concludes by warning that addressing these pressing concerns needs to be on the agenda of policy makers throughout the world.
