Portsmouth University announces virtual Futures for Food symposium
The University of Portsmouth is introducing a virtual symposium, Futures for Food, on 28 May 2020.
The event will dissect the “every day” subject of food that impacts every aspect of private and professional lives including producing, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing, consumption, cooking, disposal of food and consumer trends and behaviour.
