    Abstract

    Culture, defined as a complex concept which includes knowledge, beliefs,
    morals, laws, customs, religions and habits acquired by mankind as
    members of society, is a key influence on how humans relate to food. As
    the unsustainable nature of our food production and consumption is more
    widely recognized it is pertinent to explore the role culture has had in
    forming current patterns of production and to hypothesize how influential
    it will be in developing new, more sustainable patterns.
    The poultry industries in both Iran and the UK are complex with
    significant social and environmental impacts throughout the supply chain.
    Poultry is an important source of protein in the diet of both the UK and
    Iran, yet production methods, consumption habits and attitudes towards
    the product vary significantly. The industry is therefore perfect for
    exploring the role of culture in its supply chain.
