Welcome from the editor: there’s change in the air
Welcome and thank you for joining me this weekend.
With January out of the way, days are starting to get a little longer and lighter, the sun is occasionally making an appearance and, although we are still in deep winter, it feels like there’s change in the air.
There’s also a change in the air that can be felt in the food sector. With more and more companies trying to make a positive difference and striving to find solutions to food security and sustainability, it feels like we are moving in the right direction (and we at Food Matters Live are getting involved too. Read all about our Sustainable Food Forum and Sustainability Week taking place this September). Don’t miss our Interview with cultured meat start-up Aleph Farms’ CEO Didier Toubia, discussing the progress being made in the sector, their latest MoUs and work towards getting approval in Singapore and Israel.
Take a listen to this week’s Food Matters Live podcast, in which we ask: Net Zero emissions by 2045 – is Scotland on track?
