Food for Wales, Food from Wales 2010:2020
A new consultation on a Food Strategy for Wales seeks your views on the Welsh Assembly Government's proposed food strategy for Wales. The strategy takes into consideration cross-cutting issues to provide the basis for an integrated approach to food policy in Wales.
It takes into consideration cross-cutting issues such as health, food culture and education, food security, environmental sustainability and community development to provide the basis for an integrated approach to food policy in Wales. Such an integrated approach is also intended to build resilience in the food system, to encourage a stronger food economy in Wales and, hence, to enhance the capabilities and capacities of food businesses to compete effectively both at home and abroad.
Sue Fowler, Director of Organic Centre Wales said: “We greatly welcome this strategy which is designed to raise the profile of food issues and recognises that sustainability and well-being must be key drivers. OCW is already working with the organic sector through the Better Organic Business Links project to increase awareness and education about organic food and farming, and increase the social and environmental performance of the organic supply chain: this strategy will provide a strong overall framework which will support our work.”
Organic Centre Wales will submit a response to the consultation.
