'Freedom from Hunger: Realising the Right to Food in the UK', A lecture by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Professor Olivier de Schutter, will be given on Monday 18 February 2013 at Doughty Street Chambers in London, from 6.00 - 7.30pm.
The horsemeat scandals which are the subject of enveloping media coverage in Britain at the moment (and which extend to 13 countries and 28 companies) point to far deeper issues about the structure of the food industry and the damage that its dominance by unaccountable corporate interests is doing in terms of health, hunger, nutrition, the environment, sustainable farming, animal welfare, food security, food sovereignty and more besides.
