From the Publisher
"This encyclopedia aims to be a source of information not only about food, but also about food that tastes good and is good for our bodies, our neighbors and the creatures with whom we share the planet. The title is a bit misleading because the encyclopedia covers a wide variety of topics and some industries. Broad in scope, this volume addresses food companies, brands, health, science and technology, culture, and the environment. In total, it presents more than 150 signed entries. Each brief entry provides current and historical information that is unacademic in nature. The contributors include historians, sociologists, nutritionists, journalists, scientists, and food service professionals….Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates, practitioners, and general readers."
"This new encyclopedia explores the world of food production and distribution in the Twenty-first Century. Coverage ranges from truck and dairy farms to meat and poultry packing plants to farmer's markets, fast food franchises and supermarkets. The scope is not just production methods and problems, but packaging, marketing, transportation and consumer issues as well….Each entry provides substantial suggestions for further research, and this guide will provide an excellent starting point for those researching all aspects of the food industry."
