Keywords: Future, Food, COVID-19, Pandemic, Strategic Planning, Foresight, Anthropology

Abstract

This commentary uses the lens of anthropology to imagine the consequences of COVID-19 for the food system. It explores the different cultural meanings of food and presents the pandemic as a social phenomenon. All of these elements suggest the possibility of a deep and widespread impact and urge economic actors to consider the broader context.
