In February, the Mason Institute lunchtime seminar Why Food Ethics Matters was co-organised with the Food Researchers in Edinburgh (FRIED) network. Dan Crossley, Executive Director at the Food Ethics Council (FEC), outlined his organisation’s work with business, government and civil society – including their promotion of a ‘less and better’ approach to meat consumption – to illustrate some of the key contemporary ethical concerns about food and farming. In her response, MI PhD student Emily Postan briefly discussed common approaches shared by bioethics and food ethics. The event concluded with a lively question and answer session that allowed the audience to explore the issues raised from a diverse range of perspectives.
