SOCIAL MEDIA STREAM (NEWEST – OLDEST)
In recent years, the food habits of our society, on par with global scenario, have undergone unprecedented onslaughts by different forces of the economy, the chief among them being changing farming patterns and corporate driven processed food. This National Seminar focuses on the changing paradigms in food and agro-biodiversity and the impacts on health, ecological, social, economic and environmental scenarios. Further, a wide array of multi-disciplinary subjects including innovations in promoting locally produced food materials and processing technologies, health benefits of indigenous foods, agro-biodiversity and nutritional security, food as medicine, traditional knowledge on food, etc could be discussed in this platform. The deliberations in this seminar would provide necessary inputs to the food and health policies at national and regional levels.
