Food Policy

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the behavioural and cultural aspects of food. It argues that food behaviour can be located within a social process in which consumers are but one set of actors in the food system, and where contexts and social interactions may be set and inherited through wider culture, geography and history, as well as family or domestic circumstance. Policies are engaged with all these levels, factors, and drivers.

Keywords:   food policy, food culture, cuisine, domestic labour, domestic circumstance
