Food, food security and nutritional health are major public policy issues. INRA presented research related to these topics at a conference on 28 February organised at its stand at the 2014 International Agriculture Show.

Despite many efforts, people’s eating habits too often stray from recommendations. Acquiring knowledge and an understanding of dietary practices and behaviours, how they evolve and what determines them, is key to informing public authorities, economic players and society at large, and to shaping policies that are best suited to the changing health of populations. Understanding how dietary behaviour and food habits are formed, and their relationship to health, implies integrated and multi-disciplinary research. INRA is committed to carrying out research designed to inform public policy makers and economic players about the underlying principles of dietary behaviour and food habits, how to shape them, their impact on people’s health and well-being, and their consequences for the environment. Come and see for yourself what we’re up to.
