Farming Fit For Food: Nuffield Triennial Conference Day

The Farming Fit For Food Nuffield Triennial Conference Day will explore how farming – in partnership with the food industry – can rise to the challenge of changing food and dietary requirements.

The conference will focus the rising consumer interest in healthy food options, coupled with the simultaneous rise in diet-related public health issues such as obesity and diabetes.

With the help of world-renowned experts, it will explore the implications of these changing needs on farming, how farmers, the food industry and health professionals can work together to respond to these challenges and the opportunities these new requirements represent. 

Experts scheduled to speak at the conference include leading academics, public health experts, farmers, producers and retailers.

University of Oxford professor Susan Jebb will explore the responsibility farmers, the food industry and government should take in providing a healthy food supply.

LEAF ceo Caroline Drummond MBE will talk about why a more integrated approach from food, farming, health, the environment and social justice is needed to address obesity.

Professor Michael Winter of the University of Exeter will explore how farming may play a part in improving public health.
