National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

10 September 2019

NFYFC's Agriculture and Rural Issues (AGRI) Steering Group AGRI is submitting ideas for a new National Food Strategy.

Defra is currently calling for evidence to gather inspiration to help transform our food system and YFC members are encouraged to share their views.

Defra wants to hear from anyone who has a good idea: producers, processors, retailers, consumers, academics, policy specialists, inventors, farm labourers, factory workers, health care practitioners, charity workers, or simply interested citizens.

From government policies to simple practical things that make a difference in your community or your business, Defra is open to hearing all ideas. These might be things that are already working well, here or abroad, and that could be scaled up or used differently. Or they might be new ideas: things that haven’t been tried yet at scale, but which you think have the potential to improve the system. Defra would like to understand the rationale for your proposals and study the accompanying evidence.

The scope of the strategy is within England, but Defra would also like to hear from people in the devolved administrations or abroad.

If you would like to add your ideas to NFYFC's AGRI submission, please contact Sarah Palmer or make your own submission via the Defra website. Closing date for submissions is 25 October 2019.
