Munch and Learn

 This fab bit of marketing from The Economist is part of their “Get a World View” campaign. They distributed branded pizza boxes to 20 pizzerias in the Greater Philadelphia area. On each box there is a pie chart that highlights statistics which relate to world food distribution, particularly those stats that relate to pizzas. The boxes cover issues such as arable and permanent crop land by country, cheese and curd imports, mushroom distribution and more. The idea was to raise awareness amongst students about global affairs.
