Ecologist Guide to Food - Complete Cover

Animal suffering, human rights abuses, the destruction of ecosystems, pollution, waste … these are issues we tend not to associate with our food. However, as investigative food journalist Andrew Wasley reveals, much of our food comes with a hidden price tag.

Drawing on The Ecologist’s unique archive as well as containing much new material, the Ecologist Guide to Food delves behind the labels to investigate the often-unpalatable truths about the foodstuffs we consume each day.

As well as uncovering the sometimes shocking practices in existence, this guide takes a look at possible alternatives for the food industry, giving a voice to some of those going against the grain to produce food that is good for you, good for others and good for the planet.

The Ecologist Guide to Food:

  • lifts the lid on the environmental, political, health and humanitarian issues surrounding our food;
  • uncovers the truth the food industry doesn’t want you to know;
  • and provides a guide to ethical alternatives, highlighting those companies making changes.

The Ecologist is the world’s leading environmental affairs title and has been setting the environmental agenda for over 40 years – bringing the critical issues of our time into the mainstream through cutting-edge reporting, as well as pioneering original thinking and inspiring action.
