BBC Food Programme looks at origins and impact of coronavirus within the global food supply chain

Where are pressures being felt and who’s making decisions about feeding Britain? The spread of Covid-19 around the world isn’t just proving to be a challenge for public health and economies, it is also proving to be one of the biggest tests faced by the global food system.

With around fifty per cent of the UK’s food supplies coming from overseas and our dependence on a complex and interconnected food system Dan investigates where the pressures are being exerted and how the government and retailers are responding. Concerns are growing for food banks, charities dependent on surplus food and the most vulnerable in society.

Listen to Dan Saladino.
