Breakdown of every hidden £1 spent on food:
• Natural capital degradation 25.7p
• Biodiversity loss 10.6p
• Production-related ill-health 13.4p
• Diet-related disease 37.3p
• Imported food 7.8p
• Farm support payments 2.5p
|•||Regulation and research||2.7p
A high proportion of these extra costs are paid by UK consumers through general and local taxation, water charges and bottled
water purchases, private healthcare insurance, and lost income. Others are paid over time to mitigate longer-term impacts such as global
warming, ozone depletion, soil degradation and biodiversity loss. We have been led to believe that we are spending less on food than ever before. Food prices as a proportion of income have fallen significantly. However, in reality, for every £1 we spend on food, we pay another £1 in hidden ways.
