The Centre for Food Policy aims at understanding how public policy affects food - what people eat, how it is grown, processed, distributed and consumed. Its remit is wide, everything from farm to fork. They are interested in the impact that the food supply chain has on human/public health, the environment, social justice and the public good.
Martin is Reader in food and health policy at the Center for Food Policy at City University. He has worked extensively on issues related to food poverty, cooking skills, local sustainable food supplies, the role of markets and co-ops in promoting health, farmers markets, food deserts & food access, retail concentration and globalisation.
