Food security

There is increasing concern about food security in the UK.The fact that the supermarket supply chain has only 2-4 days stock means that shelves would soon be emptied if supplies were disrupted. This was been brought home recently by fears over Brexit but a much bigger worry is the effect of climate change on food production.

Some years back I interviewed Prof Tim Lang who voiced his fears, nothing has changed in fact things are more precarious now than they were 10 years ago.
