There’s more to food integrity than just protecting against fraud
We have had a definition of Food Security since the World Food Summit of 1996, but now there is an urgent need to define what food integrity really means. In this webinar, Professor Chris Elliott of Queen’s University Belfast outlines his own definition and how this has been divided into what he describes as his ‘seven principles of food integrity’. These are very wide ranging, very challenging and in some cases very disturbing. And as we strive to achieve a global food system that is sustainable, safe and equitable, we may have to be controversial and start challenging the status quo.
