About This Book

This book brings together an international group of agriculture and food lawyers and scientists to define the field of Food System Transparency in three parts: the big picture, food safety and health, and the global view. Each part adds to the whole but zooms in through a unique lens. Investigating social, economic, political, scientific and legal frameworks, this comprehensive volume addresses topics such as food authenticity, agroecological evaluations, and consumer protection. Interwoven themes of transparency contextualize concepts of food safety, information sharing and regulatory opportunities at a local and global scale. Editors' notes provide blended legal and scientific commentary to facilitate further discussion and context within the classroom.

Advantages of this volume include:

  • Chapters written by foremost international experts in their fields


  • Editors' notes written for classroom use and background information


  • Figures and tables providing illustrations of important concepts


  • Case studies delivering practicality and in-depth analysis to current events


  • A special chapter on COVID-19 and its implications for the food system


This book is important reading for graduate-level students, legal scholars, nonlegal academics, advocates for food system transparency and resilience, agroecology and environmental conservation, and practitioners in any cross-disciplinary areas relating to food policy. It will be of interest to all those who seek to deepen their understanding of the concepts and trends surrounding the information that centers around our food system, both domestically in the United States and the European Union, as well as in many major trading nations such as China.
