How to feed a population of 9bn in 2050? This was the question posed which provided the impetus for Elsevier to launch the bi-annual International Conference on Global Food Security Conference in 2013.

Food creation 2. Food safety and bio security 3. Food loss and waste 4. Food in a changing society 5. Food utilization.
