Defra’s review of the food industry needs your input

Consumers, farmers and food producers have been asked to submit their opinions on how the UK’s food industry could be improved.

Defra has launched a review into how food is produced, sold and consumed in the UK. The review will identify what currently works well in the food industry and the role innovations in technology such as vertical farming and robotics could have on improving food supply.

As part of the review, Defra has launched a call for evidence, which will enable consumers, farmers and food producers to submit their opinions on how the food industry could be improved.

Their views will inform what the government says is “the first major review of the nation’s food system in nearly 75 years, led by entrepreneur Henry Dimbleby, to ensure the food industry is fit for the future, supports growth, enhances the environment and is resilient to the challenges posed by climate change.”

The review findings will be used to develop a National Food Strategy, which will be published in 2020.

This call for evidence ends at 11:45pm on October 25th 2019.
