This collection of essays explores some of the policy implications of changes in the way people view and consume food and what this means for government, suppliers and the commercial sector. It examines some of the issues around consumer behaviour and the role of food and food suppliers in the community; food labelling; genetically modified foods; the ethics of food; and nutritional standards.  In particular, the contributors explore the relationship between health, affordability and sustainability.
