New Foodsource building block: What is feed-food competition?

This building block explores key statistics about competing uses for food system resources, focusing on the use of land, crops and wild fish for feeding humans or feeding livestock – a trade-off known as feed-food competition. It also outlines different ways in which people interpret these figures and sets out how these differing perspectives link to broader debates about what we should eat and how we should produce food, particularly concerning what role (if any) livestock should play in the global food system.

The Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) conducts, synthesises, and communicates research on food sustainability.

We inform and connect stakeholders with a common interest in building sustainable food systems.
