This collection of essays examines the issue of food production and food security in Britain. At the global level, population growth, economic growth in key emerging countries, changing dietary patterns, finite land availability, climate change, challenges to the availability of key resources, the energy challenge, and a slowdown in the rate of growth of food productivity all point towards the need for new thinking. These papers examine the issues from both an international context and for their potential effects on the UK.
