Supermarkets, supply and waste

View descriptionShare

James Wong takes a look at what you can do at home, versus what big business and supermarket giants are doing to make sure our food choices are transparent and production is fair and sustainable. He speaks with the Former Director at Sainsbury’s and Kew Trustee Judith Batchelar, as well as Anna Taylor of the Food Foundation.

Our food habits are exposing wild inequalities in our world: whilst more than 2 billion people are suffering with malnutrition worldwide, the amount of waste generated by supermarkets could feed up to 3 million.

But making positive change isn’t out of our hands as individuals. Tessa Clarke of OLIO explains how our homes are some of the biggest culprits for food waste and emissions, and we find out how a foodie revolution is happening on our local streets and doorsteps.

Artist Tanya Shultz of Pip and Pop tells us how they created an installation exploring food utopias and histories.

Plus, Professor Phil Stevenson heads into one of Kew’s own kitchens to find out about an exciting plant-based and low-waste menu that’s waking up the public’s tastebuds.
