In this episode, I’m speaking to Travis Andren from Seedling in Philadelphia, in the United States – an organisation working on bringing efficient forms of urban-based, vertical farming …
Supermarkets imposing ridiculous and wholly unnecessary cosmetic standards are known to be one of the main causes of perfectly edible food going to waste at a farm level.

The first time I came across The Pig Idea was when they were serving up the pork they had produced, and were attempting to feed 5,000 people in Trafalgar Square in the heart of London.
It’s a great initiative that deserves a lot more attention and support in its attempts to lift an EU ban on feeding catering waste and swill to pigs.
