Citizen science and food - A review

This report for the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA), co-authored by Table member Christian Reynolds, reviews how citizen science methods can be applied to food policy. Citizen science means actively involving citizens and communities in collecting data and creating new knowledge.

The report identifies existing citizen science projects within the FSA’s priority areas: food hypersensitivity and allergies, assuring food safety and standards, innovation in food regulation, and future food systems.
