Additive and preservative free, natural salt and sugar alternatives, sustainable proteins and microbiologically safe foods are already here and we can thank science for providing them.

Whilst a lab scientist may not conjure up the same feelings as a farmer surrounded by sprawling fields of crops and cattle, welcoming technological advances including genetically modified foods to achieve a long-term sustainable future may be our best option.
