Can a National Food Strategy create sustainable food cultures?
Join the FoodCiTi (Food Culture in Transition) research team to explore and debate the topics of food systems and culture.
Part 2 of the National Food Strategy for England is due in early 2021. Henry Dimbleby is leading the first independent review of England’s food system for 75 years. His team aims to create a strategy that will deliver safe, healthy, affordable food, regardless of where people live or how much they earn. But can food policy and strategy really change the way we produce, buy and eat food in this country?
Our panel of experts are well-placed to debate the need for food policy in general, the role of England in a global food system and the potential for a national food policy to create meaningful change.
