2 June 2021: TABLE launch event: Should the future of food be global or local?
TABLE's official launch event on 2 June 2021 celebrated the transition from the Food Climate Research Network into TABLE. The event centred on perhaps one of the most complex questions around food and sustainability: At what scale should the food system operate? In other words, should the future food system be more globalised or localised, and why? Please click here for more information about this event.
11 May 2021: A dialogue on Regenerative Agriculture: Why is it taking the world by storm?
TABLE and LEAP present a dialogue on Regenerative Agriculture (RA) between Ken Giller (Wageningen UR) and Yichao Rui (Rodale Institute) moderated by Tara Garnett (TABLE). We discussed the following topics: How is RA different from agroecology, organic, sustainable agriculture? What is meant by soil biological health? Is it important? How does RA tie in with debates about land-sparing and land-sharing?

12 March 2021: Ask the Author - Considering plant-based meat substitutes and cell-based meats
TABLE presents Ask the Author series, an intimate space for a detailed discussion about the research and its implications with participants from a range of disciplines and sectors. We discuss Raychel Santo (Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future) and colleagues’ recent publication in Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems: Considering Plant-Based Meat Substitutes and Cell-Based Meats: A Public Health and Food Systems Perspective.
5 February 2021: Ask the author - Halting European Union soybean feed imports favours ruminants over pigs and poultry
TABLE presents Ask the Author series, an intimate space for a detailed discussion about the research and its implications with participants from a range of disciplines and sectors. We discuss Johan Karlsson (the Swedish Agricultural University) and colleagues' recent publication in Nature Food: Halting European Union soybean feed imports favours ruminants over pigs and poultry. The paper examines three scenarios for animal-source food production in the European Union under two constraints: halting all imports of soybeans and soybean meal used as animal feed, and not using any additional land for animal feed cultivation (either inside or outside the EU).
