Big agriculture is the only option to stop the world going hungry
Food riots, such as those in Mozambique, could soon be seen here too unless we overhaul the way we produce food
Jay Rayner, The Observer, Sept 12, 2010
“If we are to survive the coming food security storm, we will have to embrace unashamedly industrial methods of farming. We need to abandon the mythologies around agriculture, which take the wholesome marketing of high-end food brands at face value – farmer in smock, ear of corn, happy pig – and recognise that farming really is an industry, much like car manufacturing or steel forging, one which always works better on a mass scale, but which can still be managed sustainably.“
