New Food And Drink Policy

Increasing access for everyone to good quality food to improve Scotland’s diet and food culture will be the top priorities of the ambitious next phase of the Scottish Government’s food and drink policy.
Scotland’s food and drink sector has enjoyed unprecedented economic growth - with industry turnover and export targets smashed years early - since the first Scottish National Food and Drink Policy, Recipe for Success, was launched in 2009.
Now the Scottish Government aims to build on that success with Becoming a Good Food Nation, a discussion document that seeks views on how to improve Scotland’s relationship with food through: Creating a Scottish Food Commission to champion the importance of food to Scotland’s health, environment, economy and quality of life as well as promoting good food choices to consumers by enlisting the support of retailers, food producers and public bodies, developing a specific children’s food policy in recognition of the impact of food on the health of young people and their ability to influence society’s behaviour for generations to come and working with communities to encourage the production and sale of more locally grown food realising the economic benefits of a better domestic food culture for Scotland’s food and drink sector.
