The Fat Cafe is a web site primarily intended for the discussion of food and food related issues particularly related to the nutritional, scientific, environmental and social aspects and implications of food production and consumption. In essence we recognise that food has a wider impact on the individual, society and the world than merely providing a source of sustenance. At a personal level, it is the question of is this the right food for an individual does it provide them with the sustenance they need, at a societal level it is the question of localism and sustainability within a local economy and environment and at a global level it is a question of sustainability for the planet at large.
