Blog: Let me tell you a story...
Dean Best | 8 June 2007
The food industry is so full of history, culture, and innovation – and pervades so much of our lives – that we learn new things about everyday.
And that’s true if we’ve been working in the industry for a month, a year, a decade or longer.
News of a valuable new resource on the UK food industry crossed the just-food editorial desk today (8 June).
The British Library has launched 'Food Stories', an interactive service designed to teach users about the changes that have taken place in the UK food industry throughout the last century.
It covers a range of topics including changes in eating habits; food and regulation; the rituals and traditions surrounding food; and food and technology.
Check it out at http://www.bl.uk/learning/histcitizen/foodstories/index.html
I’ve had a quick search around the site and it provides an interesting background to the industry; particularly for someone relatively new to the sector like me.
But even if you’re a food industry veteran, you’re sure to be interested in some of the oral testimony collected by the British Library to support the project and to illustrate the changes in the food industry. Fascinating stuff.
