Annual Conference Virtual Seminar Series: Food strategy

21 May 2020, 11am

This year instead of holding a one-day annual conference in London, we will be delivering a series of virtual seminars in May and June on topics that CSaP and our network have worked on over the past year. Invited experts will offer insights into some of the latest research that has the potential to inform decisions taken by policy makers.
The first virtual seminar in this series will be on the topic of food strategy with expert speakers from the University of Cambridge.

In this seminar, we’ll take a systems approach to exploring the economic, consumer, animal welfare, and health implications of our food. We’ll discuss the role of the Food Standards Agency, how the government can model and promote health and sustainable food options, how covid-19 has illuminated issues of food security, and what the next steps for supporting high quality, sustainable, and nutritious foods might be.

Date: 21 May 2020

Time: 11:00-12:15 on Zoom

Host: Dr Rob Doubleday
