Time to fix the failures in food, says Lords Committee

This report considers the links between inequality, public health and food sustainability.

It found barriers at all levels of the food system that make it harder for people, particularly those living in poverty, to access a healthy and sustainable diet.

It sees that the lack of a unifying government ambition or strategy on food has prevented interrelated issues such as hunger, health and sustainability from being considered in parallel, meaning that opportunities have been missed to develop coherent policies that could effect widespread change.
