Title:   Susatainability & the Food Industry      

Course Number:      UEP 0194AA
Campus: Medford/Somer.   
Room: Olin Center 107

Course Description:

This course examines the "middle" of the food system, poised between food producers and consumers, where the vast majority of food profits are made and spent. This is where food distributors, manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers transform the very nature of what we eat and establish the economic, social and environmental terms that shape much of the food system. By studying the dominant food system, we learn how established companies are adopting new policies and practices to become socially and environmentally responsible. We also explores the growing number of alternative programs and businesses that seek fundamental change by building a new, more reliable, equitable, and sustainable food system.
