Resilient Supply Chains
’Adapting food supply systems to deliver better resilience while improving nutrition, reducing environmental impacts and sustaining economies fairly’
Global food security exists when people have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food to maintain active, healthy lives, but globally, achieving food security must also promote sustainable development. This lies at the complex nexus of economic growth, resource demand, environmental sustainability and public health.
The challenge of this theme is to integrate our understanding of food supply networks from food production and supply through to consumption and nutrition to identify and apply innovative practices to adapt the UK’s food supply network.
