This conference will discuss the priorities for developing a new wide-ranging National Food Strategy for England.

It is timed to follow the publication of the interim report in the spring and take place ahead of the publication of the final strategy expected in the winter.

“Our scope is intentionally broad. We have been asked to set out what needs to be done - across all departments of government and in society more broadly - to build a robust food system that provides good affordable food to everyone; restores the environment; maintains our countryside; brings good jobs to our communities - rural and urban; and stops making us sick.”
