My guest on the podcast today is Minna Kaljonen, a research professor at the Finnish Environment Institute. She also works with the “Just Food” project carried out in Finland.
In this episode, Minna and I talked about the just sustainability transition of the food system, and we discussed the problems in the current food system in the world and Finland. We also discussed sustainable diets and sustainable eating and the communities marginalised by the food system in Finland.
The problems of the food systems and the actors in them are diverse and complex. Thinking
about this complexity, we also talked about how the future of the sustainable food system research and action should be like.
As usual, at the end of the episode, Minna has a question for you. I look forward to reading your answers as a comment.

What do you think are the biggest problems in the food system today? Write in the comments!
Have a great week!
Here in the United States, I think the biggest problem in the food system is an inequitable government subsidy to large factory farms and meat producers which create cheaper food, but food that is not as healthful as that grown on organic farms, especially small farms that get no subsidy. We’re creating a “Roundup Ready” world, and poisoning ourselves in the process.
Yes small farmers are suffering a lot unfortunately, and in many other parts of the world too. 😔
