Synopsis

Food matters. It is a basic human need, yet its availability in adequate, safe, nutritious and regular amounts for humans is by no means assured. While land and water for food production are both declining at alarming rates due to natural and human causes, the demand for food is still growing as populations all over the world increase. The unending questions – where food comes from; how it is grown; how climate change impacts the supply of vegetables and fish and what we can do about it; nutrition in diet; future new types of food that will be produced in factories; how safe is organic food and GMOs, etc – present some of the most pressing food-related issues everyone, from leaders and policymakers to corporate chiefs and man-in-the-street, needs to be aware of. This seminal book, Food Matters, by Professor Paul Teng and Manda Foo provides explanations to the many questions asked about today’s food sources and quality. Written in prose that is easily understandable, it takes the reader through the fascinating story of the origin of our common foods, how they have changed in looks and their methods of production, and discusses many issues on the minds of consumers and governments.
