As the election campaign gathers pace, the Scottish Greens have committed to introducing a Food, Farming and Health Act in the next Parliament.
The Scottish Food Coalition believes that framework legislation is required to facilitate a just transition to a better food system. More information on the campaign for a Food, Farming and Health Act is available here.
The Scottish Food Coalition's report, Plenty: Food, Farming and Health in a New Scotland, was quoted several times during a Parliamentary debate on Scotland's Food Future on 18th March.
Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and the Environment Richard Lochhead commended it as 'first class' and stated 'the report certainly gives us many ideas for how we can get to a much better place in the future'.
