The True Cost of Food by Katie Dicker


The True Cost of Food by Katie Dicker

Where does the food we eat come from? What are the working conditions like for people who form part of the supply chain for the world's food industry? This book looks at the impact our food choices have on our lives and on the environment - both in terms of what we eat and the food we waste. It asks how we can improve our lives and those of others with the things we buy.
