Summary The rationale for the volume is the realization that the current food supply has demonstrated impacts that make it unsustainable, and a faith that the food industry has the capacity to provide safe, nutritious, and flavorful foods to a range of consumers without degrading the environment or cutting into profit. Contributors from various food and beverage corporations, industry associations, advocacy organizations, and universities look at each stage of the food industry in turn, identifying the problems and suggesting solutions or alternatives. They cover agriculture, processing and food waste, distribution, packaging, life cycle assessment, social aspects of the food supply chain, eco-labeling and consumer interest in sustainable products, food and beverage manufacturing companies, food retailing, food service, and sustainability principles and innovation for food products.
