Cheap food not the answer to food poverty

This from the Farmers Guardian (March 24 2914)

“Ralph Early . .head of food science and agri-food supply chain management at Harper Adams, warn[s] the days of cheap food must draw to a close. . . . ”

“The continual drive to produce the cheap food that fuels supermarket competition is having a damaging effect on the environment and agricultural biodiversity, as well as the capacity of the land to continue to produce food sustainably. . . .”

“In Britain, food poverty is relative and not absolute, as some politicians would have us believe. The answer to food poverty does not lie in cheap food. It lies in economic policies that create jobs and distribute wealth fairly.”

One thought on “Cheap food not the answer to food poverty

  1. Yes, but whatever makes you think a change is coming just because of ‘damaging effect on the environment and agricultural biodiversity’. When has that ever made a difference?
