The Food Standards Agency has recently published its five-year strategy for improving food, recommitting to its mission of ‘food you can trust’.
The strategy reflects the FSA’s greater responsibilities now that the UK is outside of the EU and considers growing public concern about health and climate change.
It sets out how it will continue to lead the way on food safety and authenticity and signals their willingness to support governments to improve the health of the nation and to look after the planet.
It details how the FSA will work as an independent, non-ministerial government department and reaffirms the role of science and evidence in informing everything they do and their commitment to transparency, proportionality and innovation.
It also sets out the aspiration to make it easier for food businesses to meet their obligations and do the right thing to protect public health.
