About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

This event is part of the 2018 Bristol Food Connections festival – a citywide celebration of the fantastic, varied and delicious food culture in our city. From the 11th - 17th June, BFC will shine a light on the diverse people, businesses and organisations that make our city's food culture so incredible. Head to the festival and embark upon a voyage of discovery and exploration, learning about all aspects of the journey of food – from field to fork.

Philosophy Breakfast: The Ethics of Global Food Production.

 In our globalised world, much of what we eat is grown, processed and/or prepared in distant countries, often by the poor. This ethically-scrupulous philosophy breakfast will include your choice of a delicious locally-sourced bap fresh from Boston Tea Party, and also a coffee or tea from South America and India

Is it possible to eat ethically in such a world? Is buying local the answer if it means depriving farmers in the developing world of export crops? With so much fair work done by migrant workers, does increased agricultural self-sufficiency require accepting our on-going need for workers from elsewhere? Do farm workers enjoy the same conditions as other workers? If not, why not? 

Join philosopher Julian Baggini and the University of Bristol's Lydia Medland to unpack the moral dilemmas involved in eating ethically in the wealthy West. The ethical consequences of our food choices often seem distant but Medland's work on the role of seasonal workers in global food production in Morocco and Spain - providers of much of what fills our supermarkets' shelves - shows it is very close indeed. There will be short talks and plenty of opportunity for discussion.

Please bring your own cup or mug to this event!
