WWF Cymru recently commissioned the Sustainable Places Research Institute at Cardiff University to produce a report to help us understand what a food system fit for future generations could look like in Wales.
The report recommends that a national vision needs to be co-produced between government, farmers, food businesses and other stakeholders including, importantly, the public through new participatory approaches at local, regional and national levels.
It further calls for Welsh Government to 'lead in the development of a food system strategy for Wales. This strategy would help link together different parts of the food system, all the way from farm to fork, which in turn could help drive a more integrated food system.'
They conclude that the Well-being of Future Generations Act provides the vision and levers needed to achieve a significant transformation in Wales’ food system.
