The period between the outbreak of World War I and c. 1950 was characterized by wars and crises. One of the industries most affected was the food sector resulting in malnutrition, food riots, strong state intervention and fascism. However, it also resulted in periods of prosperity in the farming and fishing communities, in welfare state building and in attempts to organise new world and food orders.
Despite of the fundamental importance of food, both for everyday consumption and for the whole organization of society, little research has been undertaken so far. This is the reason for establishing an international conference on Food Production and Food Consumption in Europe, c. 1914-1950.
