food resilience - a UK food cupboard

A resilient UK food system: POSTnote by Grantham Scholar Joe Llanos

Grantham Scholar Joe Llanos writes a summary of issues that affect UK food resilience for POST. 

POST is parliament’s in-house source of analysis of public-policy issues. And their focus is public-policy issues related to science and technology. However, they publish summaries (POSTnotes) on a wide range of subjects.

Grantham Scholar Joe Llanos has been working with POST for the last few months. While at Post, he was funded by N8 Agrifood.

Joe has written a blog about his time with POST and you can read that here.

A resilient UK food system

While at POST Joe has been examining resilience in the UK food sector. His POSTnote A resilient UK food system defines resilience and explains why it is needed. Plus Joe shows what a more resilient UK food system could look like and explores possible ways of achieving it.

Joe spoke to a number of experts for this POSTnote, including Peter Jackson from The Institute for Sustainable Food at the University of Sheffield and Lenny Koh from Energy Institute at the University of Sheffield.
