Description

Combining theory, research and policy Consuming Interests provides a topical interdisciplinary exploration into the nature of food provision, policy and regulation. The book provides a detailed examination of corporate retailers, state agencies and consumer organisations involved in the food sector. The analysis explores questions including: * what can the public expect from the state

* what limits are there on state action

* what are the most appropriate balances

between public and private interests in the provision of 'quality' foods.
