On 27 June 2019, DEFRA Secretary of State commissioned Henry Dimbleby to conduct an independent review to help the government create its first National Food Strategy for 75 years. The scope of the review is to address the environmental and health problems caused by our food system, to ensure the security of our food supply, and to maximise the benefits of the coming revolution in agricultural technology.
To inform this review, DEFRA’s National Food Strategy Team has begun a dialogue, co-funded by the Sciencewise programme, to engage a diverse and inclusive cross-section of the public to deliberate on the priorities and outcomes of the forthcoming Food Strategy.
