The Scottish Government are proposing a new law on food – a Good Food Nation Bill.

They have some good ideas, but as part of the Scottish Food Coalition, we don’t think they go far enough. This law will need to be more ambitious to make a real difference.

We all have until the 29 March to tell the Government what we think of their proposals and try and raise the ambition of this new law. To help everyone participate, the we have created two handy tools:

The Scottish Food Coalition have published a “Guide to Responding” (this link will take you away from our website) which guides you through answering the consultation questions, and provides explanations and some ideas for what to include in your response. Although the questions are not easy to understand, your response will be more impactful if you directly answer the consultation questions.

If you don’t have much time, you can use the Scottish Food Coalition e-action (this link will take you away from our website) to help you share your views in just a couple of minutes.
