First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been urged to fast-track changes to Scotland’s food system that would include enshrining the right to food in Scots law.
More than 70 leading charities, academics and special interest groups have joined forces to submit a joint letter to the First Minister calling for the Good Food Nation Bill to be brought forward for a vote before the end of this Parliament in 2021. Click here to see the full letter.
In the response, the First Minister outlines different initiatives working towards a Good Food Nation agenda that the government is already partaking in. These initiatives include the reconsideration of marketing foods with little or no nutritional levels and the necessity of enshrining food within a human rights framework. Importantly food insecurity, climate change, animal welfare and health are all issues being considered. Read the letter here.
Let's keep making our voice heard so we can take these initiatives further and make Scotland a Good Food Nation.
