Impacts of COVID-19 on the Food System

'The food system is a complex web of activities including the production, processing, transport and consumption of food. However, the Covid-19 pandemic is illustrating its flaws and fragility'.

'Food on the Move', an online event on 7 July 2021 brought together academics, business reps and members of the public to discuss the ways in which fast-evolving food chains have been affected.

'Rethinking Hospitality - The Future of Food & Drinks Catering', a panel debate in the Resonate Festival on 20 April 2022, featured a brewer, wine merchant, historian & two gastro-entrepreneurs to assess short-term shocks and longer-term opportunities.
