Food Policy

Integrating health, environment and society

Tim Lang, David Barling, and Martin Caraher

  • Offers a much-needed reappraisal of the topic of food policy, from a 21st century perspective
  • Written by an eminent team with experience in the world of food policy-making as consultants, advisers, observers, researchers and participants in various UN, international, and European bodies, and in national and community/local organizations and processes
  • Acknowledges the controversy that 'the public good' means different things in different parts of the world, and the importance of this in relation to food policy
  • De-mystifies food policy by firmly identifying rich countries in the food policy driving seat
  • In developing the argument for an ecological public health approach to food policy, the book embraces the need for a sustainable food future, a hugely topical global issue
