About Alex Renton

I’m a campaigning journalist specialising in poverty, development, the environment, food culture and food policy around the world. I’ve won awards for investigative journalism, war reporting and food writing.

I am a contributing editor of the Observer magazine and I write regularly for NewsweekThe Guardian, The ObserverThe Times, the Daily Mail, Intelligent Life and Prospect Magazine. I appear on radio and TV – here’s TV work for the BBC.

I am writing a history of the boarding school system for Weidenfeld & Nicolson. My short e-book on meat, in the past and in the future, was published in 2013 by Guardian Books. Thinking of doing a longer version… with more blood and offal.
