This special issue examines how best to manage food production, distribution and consumption in an ethically viable manner. This issue consists of five papers. The first paper explains the differences between US and EU policies on genetically modified food and crops. The second paper explores the issues raised by the use of GM technologies in aquaculture. The third paper suggests an ethical matrix framework that enhances public justification of judgments and respects pluralism. The fourth paper reviews literature on political consumerism and challenges the new orthodoxy of the active consumer in the social sciences. The fifth paper provides an analysis of the evolution of thinking and talking about the role of scientific knowledge and expertise in food safety policymaking and in risk policymaking more generally from the late 19th century to the present day. The continued need for more thorough and concerted bridging of multiple disciplines for well-balanced work in food studies, is suggested in order to meet the challenges to food production and consumption in a just and socially responsible way.
