    Far offshore are the high seas—waters beyond any country’s jurisdiction and the focus of a contentious debate. The high seas, which cover nearly two-thirds of the ocean’s surface, have recently seen an increase in fishing and other activities, such as deep-sea mining. To protect the biodiversity of this vast environment, delegates attending a meeting currently underway in New York are negotiating for a new international treaty, an addition to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. At this, the first in a series of meetings, some activists and scientists are urging the United Nations to discuss regulating,...

And the product is so popular that corporate cafeterias, restaurants and food halls around the U.S. are dropping $7,000 apiece to buy in. “We’re building the Lego blocks to grow food anywhere,” founder and CEO Andrew...

    Riverfront Times ^ | 2/16/10 | Nick Lucchesi
    From 2009 to 2010, freelance food writer and chef Robin Wheeler combed through old cookbooks to try her hand at recipes that had been popular in the middle of the 20th century, but had since fallen badly out of favor. The results were inspiring .... albeit mostly in terms of what not to do. We rounded up twenty outtakes from Wheeler's project, showing what happens when a professional chef meets the deadly processed concoctions of 1960s-era mass market cookbooks.

    A professor at George Washington University Law School has released a report claiming that milk is a "racist tool" that is used by "White supremacists." Legal Writing Professor Iselin Gambert writes in a new research paper, warning of the consequences of drinking milk can have on American society, saying: “Sociologist Professor E. Melanie Dupuis has studied the historical links between milk-drinking and manifestations of White supremacy in society.”

    The nation's largest grocery chain will be plastic-bag free at all of its nearly 2,800 stores by 2025. Kroger Co., which orders about 6 billion bags each year, will begin phasing out their use immediately at one of its chains based in Seattle, a city that has been proactive on reducing plastic use. The company, based in Cincinnati, operates 2,779 stores in 35 states and the District of Columbia, serving almost 9 million people daily through two dozen different grocery chains. Kroger is seeking customer feedback and will be working with outside groups throughout the transition. It will begin phasing...

    It’s the year 2038. The word “flavor” has fallen into disuse. Sugar is the new cigarettes, and we have managed to replace salt with healthy plants.
 We live in a society in which we eat fruit grown using genetics. We drink synthetic wine, scramble eggs that do not come from chickens, grill meat that was not taken from animals, and roast fish that never saw the sea. Was this what we had in mind when we started seeking transparency, traceability, and sustainability of our food system many years ago in the early aughts? About a decade ago, we lived through...

    In the latest episode of “Banished!” by the People’s Republic of California, Governor Jerry Brown is likely to sign a bill that prohibits restaurants from offering anything other than milk or water with their kids’ meals, under the pretense of preventing obesity. Effectively they’re telling parents they’re not capable of being trusted with their children’s health. It’s Big Brother Knows Best vs. mom and dad. They want to control what little Johnny and Susie drink with their kids’ meal. If restaurants don’t play along they could be fined up to $500. So now California isn’t just the nanny state, it’s...

    The world’s largest vertical farm is coming to Dubai. The indoor farm is a $40 million joint venture between Crop One Holdings and Emirates Flight Catering, who say it’s a way of producing pesticide-free crops while using a fraction of the water that traditional farming does. The produce will feed passengers of Emirates and other airlines at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport. The farm will be built near the airport, eliminating trucking costs and emissions. But is vertical farming really as green as it seems? HOW DOES IT WORK? To feed a growing global population, which could reach 9.1 billion...

    • McDonald’s has been serving McGriddles — breakfast sandwiches with two little pancakes for buns — for years, and now the chain is taking its sweet-and-savory morning item to a higher level. Mickey D’s has introduced the French toast McGriddle for a test run at some 200 locations in Minnesota. Not only does this dish innovate by tucking the fillings inside two slices of French toast, it brings bacon and sausage together on the same sandwich. • Speaking of McDonald’s, it seems the Golden Arches has decided its table service and self-ordering kiosks are the way of the future. McDonald’s...

    More foodservice establishments are finding success with the versatile Korean barbecue trend. Globally-inspire food trends continue to entice Americans. Long before the PyeongChang, South Korea 2018 Olympic Winter Games Korean culture was diffusing into America at a rapid pace. The Korean wave swept in with K-pop, K-beauty, K-drama, K-food and now, according to recent data from The NPD Group, a global information company, K-BBQ. Pounds of Korean barbeque sauce shipped from broadline foodservice distributors to U.S. independent and micro chain* restaurants increased by 120% last year and continues to grow. K-BBQ is primarily sold by broadline distributors to Asian-casual dining...

    When the Unatego School District Board of Education voted to close the Otego Elementary School in February 2017, a committee formed to decide the fate of the building. In a 4-2 vote on Monday, Aug. 6, the board accepted an innovative farming proposal. AgZeit LLC has high hopes. The proposal bills the collaborative project as “a new way of doing business that will economically revitalize Otsego County and the Mohawk Valley Region and help New York State once again become the breadbasket for the entire northeast.” The Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council prioritized agribusiness initiatives in its 2017 Progress...
