Nuffield Farming Lecture 2018

July was a very busy month for me especially with my involvement as Chair of the organising committee for the inaurgural Nuffield Farming Lecture 2018.

Professor Winter's report "Changing Food Cultures: challenges and opportunities for UK Agriculture" gives an excellent overview of issues connected with food and the farmer, and how British Farmers could be proactive in helping to create a new food culture which nourishes and sustains health and wellbeing. It is well worth a read and can be found here.

There are online videos from the lecture in three sizes: 

Snapshot (2 minutes)   Bitesize (6 minutes)   Full version (2 hours) that includes the 45 minute lecture and a lively food policy question and answer session. Do check them out, and share the post widely.

Farmers and supply chain: check out the case studies for embedding nutrition as a pre-requisite in food supply.

Academia: add to your reading lists as "go to sources" in the next academic year.
