HELP SHAPE THE NATION’S FOOD STRATEGY

21 August 2019

In June, Henry Dimbleby was chosen to lead Defra’s National Food Strategy, and the Call for Evidence is now open to everyone.

This is the first time in nearly 75 years that we have had the opportunity to shape how we produce, sell and consume food. These views will form part of the first major review of the nation’s food system, which we hope will deliver safe, nutritious, sustainable and affordable food that is accessible to everyone, both now and in the future.

The aim of the call for evidence is to gather inspiration that will help transform the food system, so let’s use this unique opportunity to respond with any ideas big or small.
