Special Issue "Food Security and Structural Transformation of the Food Industry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 10269
The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed our way of life, including the way we interact with food. As we adopt to the new normal of the pandemic, the food industry is also experiencing profound structural transformation. Food security concerns such as food price fluctuation, household and restaurant food waste pattern changes, health risks introduced by take-out orders, etc., also arise. Food security researchers have collected data to investigate issues surrounding food security. As a result, we feel it is the right time to organize a Special Issue on food security and the structural transformation of the food industry. We are looking for papers that investigate food security issues related, but not limited to, impact from the pandemic, while also offering critical reflection and providing a forward-looking discussion on future expectations in the realm of food security.
