National Good Food Nation Plan: Consultation Workshop, Edinburgh
Join us in Edinburgh to provide your views on Scotland’s national Good Food Nation Plan.
About this Event

The draft of Scotland’s first ever national food Plan has been released and now it’s time to have your say.

This is the plan intended to get Scotland to its Good Food Nation vision:

“where people from every walk of life take pride and pleasure in, and benefit from, the food they produce, buy, cook, serve, and eat each day.”

We need to make sure the plan reflects what a Good Food Nation means to everyone: Where are we now? How do we get there? What could be improved?

To have this conversation and collect these views, the Scottish Government has begun a consultation process. As part of this national consultation, a series of in-person and online workshops will be held across Scotland.

During these workshops, we want to work together to understand what life in a “Good Food Nation” looks like for you. We will discuss Scotland’s food system and you will have the opportunity to tell us about any food related issues that are important to you. We expect to cover a range of issues during our workshop. These might include, for example:

  • specific changes needed in your neighbourhood;
  • access to new technology for farmers;
  • what would make it easier to feed your family;
  • a pay rise for food workers.

Within these 2.5 hour sessions, we will be working through the Plan, holding open discussions about its proposals, and collecting your views for consideration by Scottish Government as part of the consultation process.

The Plan can be read here.

The consultation document can be read here.

If you wish to complete an individual response to the Plan, please submit here.

If you have any questions, or foresee any difficulty attending this workshop, please get in touch directly: [email protected]. We can offer some financial assistance to support with childcare or travel requirements.
