Food sustains life. Since the beginning of time, it has underpinned our existence. Every day, in every country around the world, it continues to do so.
In an age where we consume up to 285 pieces of content just via social media on a daily basis, information needs to be easily accessible, quick to the point and captivating. This is the age of the infographic, where statistics, facts and knowledge are made easily available and understandable.
