Since the start of 2019, we have been asking Sustain members and other experts what policies they would like to see a National Food Strategy promote – and the results are in.
Ben Reynolds who led the consultation commented,
“We have been bowled over by the breadth of great ideas coming from organisations across the UK: calls for better use of public money to support UK horticulture, targets for increasing retail diversity and agro-ecological production, making public catering climate friendly, removing the ban on using some food waste as animal feed, and much more. We hope the National Food Strategy will feature many of these big ideas, which taken together provide a fantastic recipe for a better food Britain.”
The call for evidence being led by the Strategy team closes on 25 October. They plan to consult more widely on the strategy in the coming months via citizen assemblies and other forums ahead of a draft strategy being put out in Spring/Summer 2020.
