Summary: 
This paper provides an introduction to a special issue on Ethical Food-scapes.
Abstract: 
The introduction, and the papers and commentaries in the theme issue, engage with the governance of ethical food and ethical foodscapes more broadly. In building on and working to extend the moral turn in geography and the social sciences more broadly, the material presented explores the premises, promises, and possibilities, as well as praxis and problems, of ethical foods and ethical foodscapes. We divide up what we are calling the 'ethical foodscape' into three analytical (but practically inseparable) categories of food ethics, ethical/moral foods, and ethical food networks.
