Food Standards Scotland has published its strategic ambitions for the next five years. It will focus on the issues that matter most to people in Scotland, including renewed emphasis on improving the Scottish diet and associated negative health consequences.
‘Healthy, Safe, Sustainable: Driving Scotland's Food Future’ for 2021-2026 is the organisation’s second Strategy, and realigns the organisation’s efforts recognising the significant societal, political and environmental changes that have occurred since FSS was established in 2015.
It sets out how the independent public sector food body will help protect the diverse interests of people in Scotland. The organisation plans to continue to take a robust evidence-based approach in its activities as the trusted and influential source on food information and advice.
FSS will continue to work with others such as the food and drink and hospitality sectors, government and other key partners in order to deliver on its commitments.
