Food is an essential part of life, but what we eat, how we grow, manufacture our food, how we distribute food, and how we access food can govern many factors of ours and the planet’s life. From the governance and economies of food production, to the sustainability of our planet, to our own health.

In this series we will look at how food is inter-woven into all aspects of ours and the planet’s present and future lives.
