Role within READJUST

EIT Food will assess inequalities in the food system using its Consumer Observatory and Education resources. The case study will examine inequalities in consumption as they relate to health impacts and the role of trust in mediating positive or negative health outcomes. It will also examine inequalities in primary production systems as they relate to technology adoption and the role of education in mediating the transition to sustainable farming systems.
