Future Food Systems: Exploring Global Production, Processing, Distribution and Consumption provides an overview of food systems, from farming through to logistics, processing, retail, service and consumption with the intention of enabling more efficient development of policy and implementation of food related practices. The book presents the considerations which must be understood to develop effective and efficient policies and practices for any level of food system and along the continuum of those systems, with attention being given to the academic, public and private sector challenges and opportunities for progress, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability.

Presented in parts to highlight key aspects of the subject area, the book explores production practices including increasingly important programs in integrated farming systems, vertical agriculture and urban farming, processes, value adding for commodities, agricultural technology, supply chain innovations and consumer considerations. The book provides foundational insights into the underpinnings of today’s food systems, its challenges and its opportunities for the future.
