Nourish Scotland - True cost Accounting: How can we pay for sustainable food?

4th June
Wednesday, 4th June 2014 from 09:00 to 17:00, Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, High School Yards, Infirmary Street, Edinburgh EH1 1LZ.

The drive for cheap food commodities pushes the food production system into damaging the land on which future productivity depends. This damage is not factored in to the cost of food but is passed on to the general public (pollution, health problems, flooding) or to our children (loss of species, loss of fish stocks, soil degradation, climate change). If we think the price of sustainable food is high today, it’s a bargain compared to the price of unsustainable food tomorrow.

This one day conference brings together food producers, researchers, policymakers, non government organisations and engaged citizens to share knowledge about the ‘externalities’ of the current food system and to share ideas about how food policy in Scotland could make sustainable food production and consumption mainstream.
