Tristram Stuart
International Award-Winning Author, Campaigner, and Expert on Food Waste

Tristram Stuart is an international award-winning author, speaker, campaigner, and expert on the environmental and social impacts of food production. His books, The Bloodless Revolution (2006) and Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal (2009), have been described as "a genuinely revelatory contribution to this history of human ideas” (Daily Telegraph) and his TED talk has been watched over a million times.

The environmental campaigning organization he founded, Feedback (www.feedbackglobal.org), has spread its work into dozens of countries worldwide, working with governments, international institutions, businesses, non-governmental organizations, grassroots organizations and the public to change society’s attitude toward wasting food.  Its campaigns and events include Feeding the 5000, a free public feast using food that would otherwise be wasted; the Pig Idea, which seeks to change laws that restrict food waste being used to feed pigs; and, the Gleaning Network of volunteers that harvest surplus produce that would be left to rot and redistributes to UK charities.

Stuart was also the winner of the international environmental award, The Sophie Prize, in 2011.  He is an Ashoka Fellow, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer and a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader.
