Food plan views

DUMFRIESSHIRE residents are being invited to have their say in Scotland’s first ever national food plan.

The Scottish Government is consulting on the nation’s first ever national Good Food Nation Plan, with a workshop to be held in Dumfries on Friday.

The plan covers a range of food-related issues in Scotland: from the rise of food insecurity and diet-related illnesses through to the impact of the food system on livelihoods and climate.

The Scottish Government wants feedback on its draft version of the plan and Rural Affairs Secretary Mairi Gougeon said: “In Scotland, we have an incredibly successful food and drink industry, with our products enjoyed by people across the globe. We want to make sure that everyone in Scotland can access affordable, sustainable food that is both high quality and environmentally friendly.”

“Our consultation gives the public the chance to make their voices heard on many aspects of Scotland’s food culture. These views will be crucial in developing our future approach to improve Scotland’s food system.”

The Dumfries part of the consultation will be held at the Easterbrook Hall between 2pm and 4.30pm on Friday, for more information visit:
