The Government will publish its Food Strategy in early 2022, to create a food system that feeds our nation today and protects it for tomorrow. As part of this, we will consider the recommendations of Henry Dimbleby’s independent review of the food system, including on mandatory reporting. The strategy will build on existing work across Government and identify new opportunities to make the food system healthier, more sustainable, more resilient, and more accessible for those across the UK.
