We live in a world with a complex food system. We explore how food is produced, processed, and delivered with an emphasis on food supply, prices, and food safety.

Sustainable Agriculture

Every day our planet must produce more food for more people – sustainably. But sustainability has a myriad of definitions. We explore the economic, environmental, and social dimensions. We look at a wide range of topics: the environment, changing nutritional demands, changing consumer expectations, human and animal health, and more.

Nutrition Nutrition


You are what you eat. How do different diets affect your health? The answer is not always clear. Is there science and research behind popular health trends?

There is no one way to feed the world. Our modern food system is a multiplicity of people, skills and capabilities, technologies, and techniques. They all play an important role in producing the food our growing world needs. Dirt to Dinner is self-funded with a commitment to objectivity and fairness, driven by sound science and rational thinking. Our research includes information gathered from universities, farmers, research professionals, companies, field experts, and scientists. We write the facts regardless of popular opinion.
