This major report from the Food Ethics Council examines the impact of food distribution networks on our environment, economy, culture and communities, and their contribution to climate change.
The way our food is distributed cements in place production, consumption and trading practices that destroy the environment, harm animals and are deeply unjust. ‘Food Distribution: An Ethical Agenda’ offers a sustainable vision for the future of food distribution, and provides a roadmap for government, business and civil society to help get us there.
The report calls for far reaching changes to government policy spanning climate change, transport, planning and school food. It argues that businesses will be under growing public pressure to prove they can be trusted ‘choice editors’, taking the responsibility for consuming ethically off their customers’ shoulders.
