This briefing makes the case that good food, farming and fishing should be put at the heart of investment and policies to support an economic recovery, and make it a green, fair and healthy one.
Food and farming are being overlooked as mechanisms to drive economic recovery across the UK. And yet food, farming and fishing sectors, particularly those which are more environmentally sustainable and make healthier options more accessible, affordable and attractive, could with the right backing deliver on these benefits whilst also delivering on more jobs and better livelihoods.
This report presents a series of opportunities to achieve this through investment and policy support in relevant areas including farming, fishing, certification, alternative livestock feeds or ecofeed, the circular food economy, baking, shorter supply chains, markets, better food retail, and meals on wheels. But these proposals are just the start, and we welcome other ideas for how the food system could create jobs in a way that benefits people and planet.
