As Defra unveils the findings of the year-long Green Food Project, the Food and Drink Federation, a key stakeholder in the development of the work, today said that the work sets a clear course for action to meet the wider global challenges of future food security and climate change.
Commenting on the report, Steering Group member Andrew Kuyk (FDF’s Director of Sustainability) said:
“Dealing with the potential tensions between the need to protect and enhance the environment and the use of natural resources to deliver sustainable increases in food production, the Project builds on the analysis in last year’s Natural Environment White Paper and the earlier Foresight report.”
“This has been a genuinely collaborative project addressing fundamental questions about the future direction of the UK’s food system. We have not come up with all the answers, but we have set a clear course for what needs to happen and shown that it is only by working together that we can reduce the risks and maximise the benefits of what we are able to produce, now and in the future, to help deliver safe, secure, affordable and nutritious food supplies for generations to come.”
