The projected growth of the world human population alongside issues of global climate change and unsustainable methods of food production and processing are some of the significant challenges that humanity will have to face. A more sustainable and ethical approach to the use of resources such as energy, freshwater and soil are among those issues of which food industry professionals should have knowledge and understanding, as sustainability is a key issue facing the agri-food industry today.
The module will address the spaces of contestation that exist, involving the need for an increased demand in the future against food quality, nutritional value, and environmental sustainability. These will be explored, considering ethical and moral values that should inform managers of the food industry. Therefore, this module will consider food sustainability and ethics across a spectrum of challenges facing both developed and developing countries and the responses of business to such issues.
