Tim Lang Professor of Food Policy, Centre for Food Policy, School of Health Sciences, City, University of London,

Tim Lang has been Professor of Food Policy at City University of London’s Centre
for Food Policy since 2002. Hill farming in Lancashire UK in the 1970s formed his
interest in the relationship between food, health, environment, culture and political
economy. He is co-author of Sustainable Diets (2017), Food Wars (2015),
Unmanageable Consumer (2015), Ecological Public Health (2012) and Food Policy
(2009). He was policy lead on the EAT-Lancet Commission (The Lancet, 2019). His
Feeding Britain (Pelican, 2020) explores the UK as a case study of a rich economy
uncertain about food security. Probing the UK food system’s defences, supply,
consumption and capacities, it concludes that, whichever risks are dissected,
sustainability, health and social justice should be central to policy and planning,
which they have not been.
