Led by Professor Bob Doherty (University of York) with collaborators from across the Universities of York, Liverpool and Manchester, this is new research project funded by the Global Food Security Programme. Through integrating knowledge from both sciences and social sciences the aim of the project is to remove the significant disconnects between various actors in the global food system and enhance overall food system resilience. Our aim is to produce new datasets, information resources, appropriate technology tools for farmers, decision making tools for business and consumer mobile technologies all working to minimise trade-offs and secure complementarities. The project is working in partnership with the UK food industry, policy makers and consumers, including Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd, Waitrose, Cafedirect, Soil Association and NFU (National Farmers Union).
