Speaker: Professor Tim Lang, Professor of Food Policy, City University London.

Monday 8 February 2016

This lecture explored the significance of the emergence of big data in the world of food and proposed that the 21st century food challenge is no longer a matter of plentiful supply of cheap affordable foods, as the productionists conceived it in the mid 20th century.

Big food data reminds us that the battle for food control is both about information and minds not just nutrients, bodies and ecosystems. And it is still about which policy direction to follow. Big data does not reduce the options but does add urgency.
