Ensuring Food Science and Technology is a Priority on the UK Political Agenda

The general election on 12 December offers an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of the importance of food science and technology to ensuring UK food security and continued success of our UK agri-food sector. We want to help make sure that all parties and candidates have the best information on how to support the UK agri-food sector with access to a skilled workforce and to food science and technology innovation for the benefit, safety and health of the public. Therefore, we are inviting our members to use the general election to raise awareness on the importance of the food science and technology sector and its impact on our society.  You can read our full letter to our members and our response to the National Food Strategy under our Consultation Responses here: https://www.ifst.org/science-policy/formal-responses
