Introduction

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of food? Ooey gooey delicious melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts, or crunchy fresh garden green salads? Is it oily fries and chips, or is it ice creams, cakes, and other baked confectioneries? Do you stick to your traditional diet or belong to the clan of cosmopolitan upwardly mobile individuals, ready to try out everything under the sun?

“Imagine clearing vast tracts of forest just to grow all the ingredients for processed and comfort food that will most likely be going into a rich person’s stomach. We could be ending world hunger twice and over if we used the very same land to grow grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables to feed the appetites of the needy, instead of cultivating animal feed, coffee, chocolates and wine to feed the egos of the rich.”
