Food production is the production of food. It incorporates agriculture and aquaculture. Scale and efficiency of food production affect food prices, food choices and quality of life. The extent to which sustainable agriculture is practiced affects our environment, our climate, and thus our future. The resilience of our food production systems affects the extent to which we can withstand a crisis.
Further distinction[edit | edit source]
Besides being split up in agriculture and aquaculture, we can further distinguish small scale and large scale food production.
