This introductory chapter begins with a description of the book's main thesis and objectives. The book is structured around a number of core problems in food policy: governance, supply chain, nutrition and health, environment, behaviour and culture, social justice and poverty. When scrutinizing these in turn, the book explores a number of key cross-cutting themes. Each proposes an argument or concern that is either already central to food policy discourse or looks set to be so. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   food policy, food governance, public interest, policy effectiveness
