WAG’s Ten Year Food Challenge For Wales

10 Dec

Rural Affairs Minister, Elin Jones today set a ten year challenge for the food and drink industry in Wales at the launch of the food strategy ‘ Food for Wales, Food from Wales 2010-2020’.  

Following extensive consultation and agreement with industry and stakeholders, the strategy takes a much broader food system approach, linking to cross cutting issues such as climate change, health and sustainability. This ambitious new agenda gives both industry and citizens the best possible future to meet the challenges ahead. During the launch, the Minister called on the industry to work in partnership with Government to secure a prosperous future for the Welsh Food and Drink sector.

 I know that many food producers attended the consultation meetings and I’m sure when you find time…………………………. you’ll read through and feed back your views to our team. A delivery plan will be developed early 2011, we’ve no more detail on when exactly it will be available or how this will be announced, but we’ll keep you up-dated as soon as we are informed.

 My view was a five-year plan, but it seems I was going solo on that one and my fear of such an ambitious plan over ten years. If you have any problems obtaining a copy of Welsh Assembly Goverment,  WAG’s food strategy, just email me and I’ll send it through for you.
