FPH and the Soil Association publish “Sustainable Food Systems for a Healthier UK: A discussion paper”

FPH’s Food Special Interest Group has published a discussion paper in collaboration with The Soil Association examining sustainable food systems.

The paper discusses the relevance and importance of food systems to population health within the UK, and provides related recommendations that support the public’s health through healthy and sustainable food systems.

In particular, the paper discusses links between the food system, environmental sustainability and population health. It asks the public health community to take a broad focus on food within policy, advocacy, research, programmes and interventions and to consider the sustainability of food systems from an ecological model perspective of public health, for populations now and in the future.
