Understanding Sustainable Food Systems In Australia

Understanding Sustainable Food Systems In Australia

In this unit, students learn about the parts of the food supply chain that work together to form a food system. They explore the journey food items take from production to consumption and research the factors that influence the food system, e.g. economy, technology, society and environment. To apply their knowledge, students will design an infographic which represents the journey of a specific food commodity through the food system. Some key vocabulary students will be introduced to include: food system, commodity, sustainability, primary production, processing, distribution, access, consumption and waste.
