Launched in two parts over 2020-2021, the National Food Strategy is an independent review commissioned by government to set out a vision and a plan for a better food system.
"The strategy sets out thorough consideration of who needs to be responsible for overseeing the transformational change that our food system badly needs, from across national Government departments through to local government, working in partnership with local communities."
Kath Dalmeny, Chief Executive of Sustain
