In recent months, the dual challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have brought food security and food miles into sharp relief. Governments across the world are now working to address food resilience and sustainability; food processors are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, chefs and restaurateurs are seeking reliable local growers of seasonal produce and new trends such as plant-based diets are disrupting more traditional markets. Add developments in agritech into the mix, and this is a fascinating time for farming and food production.
