Welcome from the editor: knowledge is power
Welcome and thank you for joining me this weekend.
Food is continuously making headlines. UK food prices being at their highest since the financial crisis of 2008 is big news this week.
With so many stories about the cost of living and the food system in the news at the moment, it’s difficult to keep up with all of them. But knowledge is power, that’s why we are launching a brand new feature, to keep you in the loop with everything there is to know in the food sector, in just one article: A week in news: the latest food and drink headlines.
Is there still a link between social class and food? Author, editor and curator Pen Vogler joins The Food Matters Live Podcast to shed light on the question, which right now, feels more pressing than ever.
With so many plant-based products on the market, and so many people trying to cut down their intake of animal products, we look at meat alternatives and bring you the most delicious options on the market, assessing them for their taste, ingredients and nutritional value. Don’t miss The best plant-based meat alternatives: from burgers and sausages to cold cuts and roasts.
From our most popular reads this week I bring you our interview with Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) Executive Director Dr Lawrence Haddad and the feature China’s alternative protein sector: rapid expansion and innovation. Enjoy!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
