About this book

The many advances in food production over the past century have made it possible to feed the whole of humanity. But food production and processing can have detrimental effects on the environment. Major challenges remain with industrial-scale farming. Higher productivity and larger volumes should not come at the expense of product quality or animal suffering. Despite their importance, the consequences of food-related problems have not been sufficiently considered.

It is essential to understand the impact that food production processes and the demands of rising living standards can have on the food consumed daily by the world's people. Of particular importance are the effects on human health and the well-being of the population, as well as the more general issues related to possible damage to the environment and ecology. Food and Environment includes contributions presented at the first international conference convened to examine these challenges. Topics include: Impact of food production on the Environment; Contamination of Food; Food Processing Issues; Traceability and Temperature Control; Characterisation of Foodplants. Food and Environment will be of interest to food scientists and nutritionists, as well as agricultural, ecological, and environmental health experts interested in all these challenges.
