Personal profile


Jordon Lazell has held the role of Research Assistant at the Centre for Business in Society since September 2013. He is a BA (hons) Geography graduate and completed a Masters by Research which explored food waste prevention in higher education institutions. As well as contributing towards a number of projects of differing scale, Jordon has been successful in leading an exploratory research project and securing ESRC Festival of Social Science funding on two occasions. These impact events bought together key stakeholders to share research findings and generate debate and discussion around future research priorities on the subjects of innovation in tackling food waste and sustainable food tourism. He also began a part time PhD in September 2014 examining food consumption and food wastage practices of consumers in the context of everyday urban lives using a practice lens. Jordon is also co-founder of the International Food Loss and Food Waste Studies Group.

Area of Expertise:

The social context of food consumption and wastage.

Research Interests

Food Waste; Food Consumption; Sustainable consumption

Vision Statement

My research concerns the food consumption practices of both consumers and businesses, paying particular attention to wasteful habits, routines and behaviours. The transgressive and boundary crossing nature of food means that our interactions as consumers are both embodied and embedded within factors of space, place, nature, culture, society and technology. My research is underlined by a need to move towards more sustainable arrangements of food consumption for consumers and business and intends to understanding the wider social, economic and environment context of food in society to address waste at the prevention stage.
