UK’s National Food Strategy

UK’s National Food Strategy

Last week saw the publication of part one of the UK’s national food strategy review, the first independent review of UK food policy in almost 75 years. The author of the review, and SRA co-founder Henry Dimbleby has focussed recommendations around three primary themes: ensuring a sustainable and equitable food system for future generations, population health and securing a fair future for UK food trade. Dimbleby calls for a sustainable food system based upon diversity with organic farms, solar-powered high-rise greenhouses and fruit and vegetable cultivation in cities just part of his vision. His next report will tackle the impact of meat consumption on the environment, and will lay out a blueprint for a greener food system – “one that no longer makes us or our planet sick”. See how some of the industry responded here.
