Solution:The transport of food in plants is carried out by a conducting tissue called phloem.
Phloem is the conducting tissue present in the plant cells formed by sieve tubes,sieve cells and companion cells.
Phloem transports soluble products of photosynthesis to different plant parts.The process of transport of soluble products by phloem is called translocation. It not only transports products of photosynthesis but also amino acids and other substances.Mainly these substances are transported to storage organs of roots,seeds,fruits and other growing organs of plants.
Translocation of food takes place in sieve tubes in both upward and downward directions with the help of companion cells present closer to them.Materials like sucrose are also transported in phloem using energy from ATP.
