Cross-party Group on Food
In the context of the public health emergency around obesity, the group provides a platform for discussing the challenges for food producers, distributors and consumers. The NAW rightly celebrates good Welsh food but for many of our citizens this is a rare or never experience. Brexit is disrupting existing markets; imported food is already more expensive and the prognosis for sheep farmers looks dire under all possible scenarios.
The Group will examine the need for a Food Action Plan to optimise the opportunities and minimise the threats of Brexit that embraces public health, rural and urban development and economic prosperity.
