Sustainable fish updates 2009

Sustainable seafood at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
Sustain's policy director Kath Dalmeny continues to sit on the Food Advisory Group to the London 2012 Olympics, which is working to help achieve London's ambition to run 'the greenest Games yet'. Seven sub-groups will report back to the London 2012 Games organisers. The aim is to provide detailed guidance to the LOCOG catering consultants, to help shape a food policy due in the autumn.

Kath was appointed chair of the fish group, and has consulted over 50 fish specialists, including several members of the Good Catch and Ethical Eats networks. A meeting at the London 2012 offices in June, led to a wide range of organisations - including some from industry - agreeing that all fish for London 2012 should be "demonstrably sustainable", and that fish should be treated as an iconic sustainability message for the Games.

See Sustain's Olympic Food webpages for more information.

Food Facts: A series of short reports on over a dozen different products, shows how people's shopping choices - as well as government policy - can protect the environment, enhance social justice and improve health.
