We have a food system that does the opposite of what it is meant to do: it makes us unhealthy. In addition, it undermines the natural resources on which the future health of farming depends and places our climate targets out of reach. It produces poor and volatile incomes for many farmers and, all too often, animal welfare that falls far short of our obligations to them as sentient beings.
If we want a better system we will need to embark on far-reaching changes.
The question is, how can these be achieved?
