Long before the recent economic woes hitting the pound, mortgages and the price of essentials, a survey in April from The Food Foundation charity revealed nearly two and a half million people had said they’d not eaten for a whole day because they couldn’t afford or get access to food. Those numbers will now be much, much higher.
On the Sky News Daily podcast with Niall Paterson, we examine a snapshot of what is happening in the supply chain – from farm to table – and its impact on all those in it.
Guests: Anna Taylor, executive director at The Food Foundation charity; David Batterbee, a sheep and beef farmer in the Peak District; Nick Allen, chief executive of the British Meat Processors Association; and James Lowman, chief executive of the Association of Convenience Stores.
