About Jez Fredenburgh

I'm the editor of EatFarmNow and also an independent journalist and podcaster. I specialise in food, agriculture, sustainability and travel. I like getting under the skin of thorny issues on trade, supermarkets, ethics, climate change and the business of farming. I'm based in the UK but love to see the world's food system and its people in action and have reported from China, Hong Kong, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Germany, France, Belgium and Greece. I have written for National Geographic Traveller Food, Vice, Huck, Farmers Guardian, Countryside Magazine, British Farmer and Grower, and Land & Business. For four years I was a business reporter and then editor at Farmers Weekly, the UK's biggest agricultural magazine. I co-host a podcast called Who Gives A Fork and run podcast training sessions.
