The True Cost of Food

By Katie Dicker

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Find out how the things we buy and use every day are produced, often at a cost to workers' health or the environment, and discover how you can shop to change things for the better.

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.
