The Global Threat to Food Security

Kate Bailey, Senior Research Associate, Food Process Innovation Unit, Cardiff Business School offers this provocation on Food Security:

As global population looks set to grow from 6 billion to 9 billion, food production will need to double at a time where there are real concerns over the availability of energy, land and water as well as the challenge of climate change.

Here in the UK, we may be facing an end to an era of ever cheaper and abundant food.  Technology will need to play its part in transforming production but is it the only solution?  How far will we also need to change our attitudes to food and food supply?

Great points.  What do you think?  How do our attitudes need to change?  Please share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
