Food Super Highway

FOOD TELEVISION – Saturday 29 May, 8.30pm

Food Super Highway takes a look at the world’s most important network – the web of movement that connects every country in the world, and never stops moving. This is the path our food must take in order to reach the local supermarkets. Looking at the techniques used to ship different perishables over long distances, this programme shows the important role technology plays in food import and export and the environmental cost of shipping food around the world, compared with growing the food more locally – with surprising results.
