Eat local is a common recommendation to reduce the carbon footprint of our diet. Food prices have been increasing forcing many families into poverty, and supermarkets have seen empty shelves for certain types of food. So the question that many are asking is “why can’t we just make or grow that food here and stop relying on imports?”.

Is eating local the answer while securing food security? Should nations aim to be self-sufficient in food? What are the external factors that enable or inhibit what we can produce and access? What power do individual consumers have? And how responsible are governments for what we eat?

The discussion will consider these questions looking at key external factors including labour, international trade, and agreements to understand what the push for nations to increase food sovereignty and become more self-sufficient means.
