BPC urges Government to secure a clear strategy on food

British Poultry Council has launched its ‘Food on every table’ campaign in order to force the UK's Government to respond to the challenges brought by Brexit and to support the food producers in the country.
The campaign calls on the Government to deliver a sustainable food strategy that guarantees safe, nutritious and affordable British food to British standards for everyone, informs the council.
"British Poultry Council’s work on ‘British Food Values’ and ‘Responsible Businesses’ has resulted in growing recognition amongst policymakers about continuity of British food production as a critical factor in ensuring access and affordability of British food for all. Now is the time to build on this work and reinforce our commitment to the government’s National Food Strategy with our new ‘#FoodOnEveryTable campaign which has feeding the nation at its core," declared Richard Griffiths, Chief Executive, British Poultry Council.
"Food on every table" has 5 key points highlighted by BPC:
Maintaining a secure supply of food that recognises British standards in post-Brexit trade deals; Ensuring access to labour post-Brexit; Putting food on the table to alleviate hunger; Using British food as a catalyst for improving health, wellbeing and social care; Securing a sustainable future for British food by achieving the UN’s SDGs.
