Home-made food democracy—Exerting control over the food supply from home

Sue Booth, John Coveney

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Otherpeer-review


As we have discussed in the previous chapter, the premise of food democracy is that it aims to reorient control of the food system from industrialised multinational giants back into the hands of ordinary people. In this way, individuals are transformed from passive consumers to active and empowered food citizens.
