Introducing Birmingham Food Council CIC – the strategic challenge of food security

They describe themselves as a critical friend to the socio-political set-up, focusing on three sets of issues that we feel do not receive enough attention: the economics of the food network, also food safety, integrity and assurance, plus the role we can play in responding to the strategic challenges of food security whether at a global, national or city level.

They also offer The Game – an engaging, informative scenarios thinking tool to enable decision-makers in local and national government, emergency planners, senior leaders in the food sector, university researchers and other policy influencers to understand existing and emerging risks to our food system, and to explore what resilience in the food supply network means for their communities.
