Seminar Series on Food Options, Opinions and Decisions (FOOD): Integrating perspectives on consumer perceptions of food safety, nutrition and waste

Dr Nicola Bown opening the seminar


Professor Wändi Bruine de Bruin, Dr Gulbanu Kaptan and Dr Nicky Bown received a grant to run a seminar series with Co-Is from the Food Standards Agency (FSA), the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), and Newcastle University. The seminar series aims to understand and improve UK consumers’ decisions about nutrition, food safety, and domestic food waste. The goals align with DEFRA, the Food and Agricultural Organisation and others who use the modern view of ‘food security’ for developed countries, by defining it as access to food that is nutritious, affordable, safe, and sustainable, while producing minimum domestic waste. Better food safety and reduced food waste are high priority for the EU.
