The National Food Strategy led by Henry Dimbleby was commissioned by government to set out a vision and a plan for a better food system. Today, Part Two of the National Food Strategy has been published.
Professor Susan Jebb, FSA Chair welcomed the report, saying:
“The National Food Strategy report deserves to be widely read and deeply considered by everyone with responsibilities for any part of our food system. Its compelling narrative focuses attention on the urgent challenges facing the food system and how we must work together, across government and industry, to create a system which is good for the health of people and the planet.
“I welcome the report, including its recommendations to expand the role of the Food Standards Agency. The FSA is an independent regulator, trusted to make sure food is safe and is what it says it is. Our work is led by science and evidence, but places the interests of consumers at the heart of everything we do. We look forward to discussing the report with government and other partners and collaborating with them to create a resilient, healthier and more sustainable food system.”
