According to the UN, the human population is expected to reach over 8 billion by 2030, so managing future food security is vital.
Food and feed production industries worldwide are facing an increasing number of challenges that impact food availability and access.
The ever-increasing risk of inadvertent spread of pests and diseases due to international trade and travel means bio-security is now crucial to protect our food supply chain.
Develop a sound understanding of food security, including the pillars underpinning food security and the key challenges now and in the future.
Your core focus will be on understanding the long-term vision and strategies required to ensure that present and future generations will achieve ongoing food security in ways that do not impact the environment.
You’ll explore policies that underpin food security and trade in a global context and be able to investigate the concept of producing, protecting and providing food to ensure sustainable food production for present and future generations.
