Task Description

Drawing on the literature, frameworks, arguments and concepts introduced in the first few weeks of

this subject, write an 1800 word essay addressing ONE of these topics.

1. In recent decades agri-food corporations have concentrated their market share and control of the

supply chains of many food commodities, both within and across sectors of national and global

food systems. Discuss the strategies and practices used by these corporations to increase their

market share/profitability, and to exercise power over producers and other corporations in the food


2. Farmers and food producers have for many decades been subject to ongoing financial pressures

related to rising costs and flat or declining prices for their produce. Discuss the practices, policies

and dynamics of the food system that have contributed to the financial pressures faced by farmers

and food producers.

3. A common response to the ongoing problem of global food insecurity and malnutrition (and the

added pressures of future population growth) is to continue promoting the need for increased food

production. Tim Lang & David Barling refer to this as the ‘productionist’ agricultural solution (and

as the ‘grow more to feed more’ approach) to food insecurity, but they highlight the failures of this

approach to address the range of health, sustainability and equity issues associated with food

insecurity in the 21st century (See Lang & Barling, 2012, p.315). Discuss how increasing total food

production does not necessarily address the range of drivers and consequences of food insecurity

and malnutrition in all its forms.
