Title of entry: The Future of Beef is Resilient
About this entry: Before the pandemic, most of us didn’t think twice about our food system. It was mostly invisible to us because everything we needed was readily available. But then, all of a sudden, it wasn’t. From panic-buying to rising food prices, the fragility of our global food system was exposed. People want to know that their source of food will be safe and stable in the future, and we wanted to show how U of A researchers and grads are at the forefront of changing our food system for the better.
This story is one of a three-part package on the future of food. It highlights U of A grads and faculty whose research is making the beef industry more sustainable and resilient to disruptions caused by global threats.
