TVO | August 1, 2016

Tam­mara Soma was raised in West Java, Indone­sia, where she wit­nessed the costs and con­se­quences of rapid devel­op­ment on the coun­try’s food sec­tor. That’s why she’s con­cerned about the health and sus­tain­abil­i­ty of Canada’s food sys­tem and its $31 bil­lion annu­al food waste. Soma dis­cuss­es her research on food con­sump­tion and food waste, and what Cana­da might learn about how to improve food man­age­ment. Watch here.
