Food security means finding ways to provide better for our growing population

With the world’s population set to grow by 3 billion in the next 30 years – and the limiting of the resources needed to produce more food, whether it is through land use or climate change – we need to act now to prevent a future food crisis that could affect us all. It is a duty of government to ensure food security for its citizens and prevent political unrest caused by food insecurity.

At the Keele Centre for Food Security, we are already finding ways to produce more food from less land, as well as reducing food waste, obesity and malnutrition, through a combination of research and education about making healthier food choices. But we all need to do more – we must do more – whether that is through new future research projects, or creating policies to improve food security across the UK and the world.
