The Good Food Nation Bill, which has the Right to Food at its heart, joins-up all aspects of food policy, and includes targets for areas of policy which impact on food. .

Yesterday’s result is a great success and wonderful reward for everyone in Scotland who has been campaigning to make the Good Food Nation Bill a reality.

The Scottish Government will now be preparing a public consultation and will continue the dialogue with the Scottish Parliament to develop the draft Good Food Nation Bill.
