Read Part One

Part One of the two-part National Food Strategy contains urgent recommendations to support this country through the turbulence caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and to prepare for the end of the EU exit transition period on 31 December 2020.

It focuses on making sure a generation of our most disadvantaged children do not get left behind, and grasping the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to decide what kind of trading nation we want to be.

The food system in data

The National Food Strategy draws on a wide range of evidence. We are committed to being open in our use of data, and have reproduced all the data visualisations and corresponding sources used in Part One in an interactive format below.

Review of food policy innovation

The National Food Strategy commissioned Corinna Hawkes and Stephanie Walton from City, University of London to do a systematic review of food policy innovation across relevant countries to inform the development of the strategy. The report draws on evidence collected before the COVID-19 pandemic and forms part of the evidence base for Part One and Part Two of the strategy.
