Scottish Ministers have launched a consultation for the Good Food Nation bill. The bill aims to improve access and understanding of the benefits of healthy local foods in Scotland as well as ensuring sustainability of the food industry.

Nourish, along with the Scottish Food Coalition, have been campaigning for a new food Bill that will provide a new framework for our food system. They want the Good Food Nation Bill to enable a coherent and connected approach to food policy, which facilitates a just transition to a fair, healthy and sustainable food system.

The consultation can be found here and will close on 29 March 2019. You can listen to a short podcast about Nourish and the Good Food Nation Bill here.
