Biofuels and the food that’s going up in smoke

The new EU policy on biofuels is resisted by the industry, but its limits are actually not harsh enough

'It’s possibly,” someone remarked to me this week, “one of the worst things ever to come out of Brussels.” Quite a condemnation, everything considered – and all the more so for coming from an Action Aid

Food Waste in Supermarkets

Say you have a melon in your fridge. And you find a soft spot on that melon, about the size of a nickel. Do you waste the whole melon? Of course not--you chop it up and throw away only the part that's bad.

How will climate change affect food production?

Do you know the water footprint of your cafe meal?

Experts are increasingly arguing that food and drink should be counted as part of our total water footprint

I am asked to guess the water footprint of the fantastic milky coffee that I am drinking in Leila's Shop, a cafe and food shop in Shoreditch, London. I hazard a guess of 10, maybe 15 litres? The actual figure – 207L – nearly makes me spit it out again.

How Food And Clothing Size Labels Affect What We Eat And What We Wear

When you go into a restaurant, you probably give some thought to whether you're ordering a small, regular or large sandwich.

Street food: risky but worth it

I rolled over, edged down my pyjama pants and wearily said: "Just stick it in".

So fatigued after driving the porcelain bus for hours on end, I didn't care much what the short Cuban woman - a nurse who was hosting me in her home in Trinidad - had loaded into the syringe she was about to shove into my behind. Drugs! I want all of them!

Food for thought – finding the novelty in daily life

Supermarket shopping is rarely fun. In all honesty, I dread schlepping to and from the grocery store, hands white and red where the cardboard handles are cutting into my skin.
