Topics picked for our next food themed magazine issue 

Thanks to all those who recently voted for which food items to cover in our May/June issue. The top 4 products, by quite a clear margin, were cooking oil, meat-free products, nuts and rice.


We could only choose three of the topics for the issue, so we decided to go with cooking oil, meat free products, and rice.

As part of the food theme we're also going to be looking at the issue of genetic modification (GM) and also look at some issues around the ethics of marketing so called 'super foods'. We'll also feature veg box schemes and other innovative ways of distributing food.

We'll be sure to cover nuts at the next available opportunity!



You can read the current issue of the magazine as a flipping book or pdf on your laptop, PC or mobile device.

This issue explores the fashion industry and how campaigning has encouraged fairer wages, working conditions and transparency of supply chains in clothing production. Read our report: catwalk towards ethical fashion.
