Tim Lang has been Professor of Food Policy at City University of London’s Centre for Food Policy since 2002. Hill farming in Lancashire UK in the 1970s formed his interest in the relationship between food, health, environment, culture and political economy. He is co-author of Sustainable Diets (2017), Food Wars (2015), Unmanageable Consumer (2015), Ecological Public Health (2012) and Food Policy (2009). He was policy lead on the 2019 EAT-Lancet Commission proposing the planetary diet. His most recent book Feeding Britain (Pelican, March 2020) explored the UK as a case study of a rich country’s food system. He proposes that the best route to security is to put sustainability, health and social justice at its heart.
The session will be chaired by John Giles FIAgrM, of Promar International and IAgrM Council member. John is a Divisional Director of Promar International – the agri food value chain consulting subsidiary of Genus plc.
