Scotland's Local Food Revolution

Scotland's Local Food Revolution

This book lifts the lid on the unsavoury reality of our current  food system including horsemeat in processed beef products, the  unsustainable movement of food round the globe, and how supermarket  shopping generates massive waste. It’s an indictment of a food system  that is out of control.

But this is also a hopeful book as it describes the local food  movement in Scotland and how demands for change are growing in strength  to re-capture control of the food system. It also shows how individuals  can take simple steps to switch to more sustainable and healthy eating  and evaluates what the Scottish Government is doing to address these  profoundly important issues.

He is a writer, activist and publisher on issues of  climate crisis and ‘collapsonomics’.
