The Food Ethics Council and Organic Centre Wales held a roundtable lunch attended by senior food stakeholders from across Wales. The purpose of the roundtable was to keep momentum building around the concept of Wales as a ‘sustainable food nation’, to explore what short food supply chains might look like (including how to support local businesses), and to further the aims of the Better Organic Business Links.
The report of the roundtable is available to download below.
Today saw the publication of a report which Government department Defra commissioned from the University of Warwick and the Food Ethics Council.
Defra commissioned the University of Warwick and the Food Ethics Council to do a Rapid Evidence Assessment in February to March 2013 to help improve understanding of the ‘food aid’ landscape in the UK. In particular, the review addressed who might be asking for such help, as well as how and why they do so.
The Industry and Parliament Trust (IPT), Food Ethics Council and the University of Warwick have set up a Commission to explore the challenges of maintaining a sustainable supply chain.
The Commission will give parliamentarians, industry and academics the opportunity to discuss issues food companies face in ensuring the sustainability of supply chains and explore upcoming policy developments that seek to tackle them.
