Hungry for change: London’s food habits are unsustainable, and things could get a lot worse.
Londoners enjoy a fantastic variety of food, drawing on huge cultural diversity and the immense privilege that the city enjoys as a market destination for produce grown all over the UK and around the world. Yet in the UK we throw away one-third if the food we buy and we important a greater proportion of the food we eat than at any other time in history.
If we are to leave a city fit for our children, we need to address these issues and introduce more sustainable methods of living. As Mayor, Christian Wolmar would use his strategic role to champion innovate and sustainable policies.
