FDF Scotland has responded to the Scottish Government's consultation on the national Good Food Nation Plan. 

They key points from our response are: 

  • FDF Scotland broadly supports the ambition that Scotland should be “a Good Food Nation”.
  • The food and drink industry is rightly recognised in the national plan as a vital sector within Scotland’s economy.
  • FDF Scotland is advocating for the plan to:
    • Create enough detail to avoid duplication and encourage regional collaboration between public sector bodies who will be required to create their own plans.
    • Recognise the need for increased support, investment and resource into the food safety regime in Scotland. This includes increasing the number of food safety professionals in local authorities and Food Standards Scotland.
    • Highlight the importance of having the right infrastructure and people and skills in place to support the future success of the industry.
