As well as covering issues such as changes to the labelling of food, legal debates on food technology, rulings on advertising and developments in nutrition strategy, Peter also focuses on broader questions such as how stakeholders are tackling the obesity epidemic, habitat destruction, socio-ethical sourcing, food-related illness and demands for more localized production.

Peter also hosts webinars and meetings on food-related issues.

Before joining Informa in 2000, Peter worked on UK newspapers covering environmental, health, crime and political issues. Since then he has covered pharmaceuticals, medical technology, clinical trials, political lobbying, animal pharmaceuticals, and GM food in Europe.
