Responsible practice in the food industry - joint meeting with the Associate Parliamentary Food and Health Forum
15 Dec 2009 16:30-18:00
Jubilee Room, House of Commons
The food industry attracts considerable criticism against a background of increasing concern about obesity and diet-related diseases; food miles, packaging, food waste and the treatment of suppliers and customers. Many in the food industry would argue, however, that it is more responsible now than ever: for example, providing more and better information about the food we eat and advice about healthy eating as well as acting to address issues such as climate change. This panel-led discussion provided an opportunity to hear the views of representatives of different sectors of the food industry and an independent charity, the Food Commission, and to discuss these issues.
