On the 16th of May the Prime Minister and DEFRA Secretary met representatives from across the whole UK supply chain, from farm to fork, for a Summit on how government and industry can work together to support a thriving UK food industry.

The National Farmers Union (NFU) says the first farm to fork summit showcases a “positive outlook” for UK food security. The summit was the first of its kind and was designed to explore UK food security and to convene the whole supply chain together.

In June 2022 they published the Government Food Strategy, which set out their vision for a prosperous agri-food sector that ensures a secure food supply. We recognise that the year since it was published has been particularly challenging for our farmers and growers. The UK Farm to Fork Summit is the next step in growing a thriving British food and drink sector, which will put more British produce on supermarket shelves in the UK and around the world. This will also help them to deliver their clear ambition in the strategy to maintain production at current levels, where we produce domestically 60 per cent by value of all the food we need.

The Summit covers the following 8 areas:
1: Innovation in the farming and food sectors

2: Skills and sufficient labour
3: New farming schemes
4: Fairer supply chains
5: Boosting exports
6: Water security
7: Energy security
8: Cutting red tape
