MILAN – Nestlé UK & Ireland CEO, Stefano Agostini, is supporting the announcement of a first major review of the UK food system for 75 years. Environment Secretary, Michael Gove has announced today that Henry Dimbleby, co-founder of Leon and the Sustainable Restaurant Association, will lead the review to investigate the entire food system, from field to fork, and consider any changes needed.
Stefano Agostini said: “This is a unique opportunity to create the food system for the future. Healthier and more sustainable; innovative and more productive; fairer and affordable for everyone.”
Launching the review, Henry Dimbleby said: “No part of our economy matters more than food. It is vital to life and shapes our sense of identity.
“But there are urgent challenges with which we must grapple. Populations are growing, diet-related conditions are harming the lives of millions, and climate change is altering what our land will yield.
“From farmers in the field to chefs in the kitchen, over the next year I’ll be speaking with people from across the food chain to address these challenges and ensure everyone has a say in shaping the future.”
