This course considers the ways in which the food industry has evolved over the past 70 years and has created the industry of convenience we have today.
Introduced though a case study from Marks and Spencer, you will see how new innovations have changed the way we shop. You will also consider the issue of food waste; in a world where thousands suffer from malnutrition and starvation you’ll consider the attitudes in your own society to this global problem.
