Our goal is to adapt food supply systems to make them more resilient in order to deliver better nutrition while improving public health, reducing environmental impacts and sustaining economies.

The challenge is to integrate our understanding of food supply networks from food production and supply through to consumption and nutrition, and to identify and apply innovative practices to adapt the UK’s food supply network.

This theme is led by Prof Peter Martin in Manchester.
