27/06/20 - Rethink: Food and farming after coronavirus

Charlotte Smith asks what the coronavirus pandemic can teach us about our food systems, with contributions from a range of speakers as part of BBC Radio's Rethink week.

Today is all about radical thoughts - What should our food system look like? What sort of food should farmers grow? How should it get to us? At what price and at what impact on our environment?

As part of BBC Radio's Rethink week Charlotte Smith presents contributions from Nuffield Farming scholar and Honorary Officer for International Affairs for The Nutrition Society, Barbara Bray; Distinguished Fellow at Chicago Council on Global Affairs and a visiting scholar at Stanford University in the Centre for Food Security, Ertharin Cousin; Professor of Global Health at Imperial College London, and the World Health Organisation’s Special Envoy on Covid-19, David Nabarro; Senior Fellow at the Adam Smith Institute, Tim Worstall; His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and Chief Economist and Assistant Director-General for Economic and Social Development Department at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Maximo Terrero.
