Whether it is test-tube meat or organic vegetables, hyper-markets or food banks, there are major questions to be asked about the way we grow and distribute food. Will it keep us fed? Is it sustainable Is it healthy? Is it fair? And who on earth gets to decide?

The Warwick Global Research Priority group on Food and the Institute of Advanced Study have invited three distinguished visiting Fellows to discuss these questions.
