Dr. Evan Fraser

Dr. Evan Fraser, director of the Arrell Food Institute, spoke about food technology with Toronto Star and on The Globe and Mail’s podcast The Decibel.  

To The Decibel, Fraser explained why he remains optimistic about the future of food and explored ways to address the global food crisis, such as combining new agricultural technology with policy to make the food system more sustainable, nutritious and efficient.  

“It’s breathtaking how fast things are changing,” Fraser said to the Toronto Star, referring to the developing technologies that are disrupting the meat industry with new alternatives. 

Fraser, a professor in the Department of Geography, Environment & Geomatics, helps lead the Food from Thought initiative and is the Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security, studying food security, rural agricultural policy and how each is affected by climate change.
