Food Challenges for the 21st Century

Course Description

One of the most significant challenges currently facing humankind is to make enough food, for an active healthy lifestyle, available to a population which will probably rise beyond nine billion within the next 30 to 40 years. There are many factors that combine to impact food availability and the access that people have to food. Food production is prominent among these factors but we can also feed more people if we distribute food more effectively and waste less food. In addition, other factors such as the state of the economy, climate change and the effects of the food production system on the environment need to be taken into account when considering the future sustainability of our food system.

This PgCert provides an opportunity for flexible and accessible postgraduate learning and professional development, for those who are unable to commit to full-time study. It is delivered by blended learning, which consists largely of online material to allow flexible working, together with short residential schools.

Modules on offer include:
- Consumers and Retailing
- Crop Production and Supply
- Economics and Logistics of the Food Chain
- Food Quality, Nutrition and Food Safety, Post-Harvest Management
- Food Security: The Impending Storm
- Food Waste, Supply Chain Management and Consumer Behaviour
- Pests and Diseases, Pest Management and Pesticides
- Soils, Natural Capital and Sustainable Resource Management
