The session will close the Theatre of Food tent on Sunday 24 July, 5pm, and bring together producers playing their passionate part in reviving rare strains of crop whose cultivation has fallen by the way in the march of the homogenous industrialised food system of recent decades. This session will delve into how the diversity of these underloved cultivars may offer solutions to the future sustainability and security of our food, whilst tasting good too.

Forgotten foods: stories of Britain's lost food and how to revive them.
Starting between 4-5pm, Sunday 24th July

Hosted by Ben Reynolds, from Sustain in conversation with Dan Saladino, R4 Food Programme and author of the award winning Eating to Extinction, Wing Mon, Head baker of Landrace bakery, Josiah Meldrum, co-founder of Hodmedod and Tom Oliver, founder of Oliver’s Cider and Perry.
