According to The Guardian, the United Kingdom’s growing population is bound to face food shortages within the next generation. As self-sufficiency is surrendered away to the demands of corporate monoculture, the people not only lose touch with their food but become dependent on a select agricultural science that dictates the DNA of what is grown, while controlling the volatile markets. When this science fails and farm productivity is stalled, everyone is put at the mercy of its failure. All the while, the diversification of crop and seed is drowned out by these highly profitable, corporate-patented seeds.

As corporate agriculture condenses farming operations around the world, it puts the growing population at greater risk. When agriculture is run by a select few large-scale farms, food shortages are magnified, affecting the population more profoundly. According to the National Farmers’ Union (NFU), the United Kingdom is losing its national sovereignty in producing its own food. They admit that more households are now vulnerable to potential shortages and volatile prices. NFU leaders are now urging leaders in the UK to come up with a plan that diversifies farming to maximize self-sufficiency.

National Farmers Union President Meurig Raymond warned, “The stark choice for the next government is whether to trust the nation’s food security to volatile world markets or to back British farming and reverse the worrying trend in food production. I want to see a robust plan for increasing the productive potential of farming, stimulating investment and ensuring that the drive to increase British food production is at the heart of every government department.”
