Put the right to food in law

A group of organisations, including the Human Rights Consortium Scotland, have written to Fergus Ewing, Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy, to ask him to bring forward the Good Food Nation Bill now.

This Bill would promote a shared vision of the place of food in our society, including enshrining the right to food in Scots law. Alongside tackling food insecurity, the bill should also establish a statutory Food Commission and put in place a range of environmental, animal welfare, food waste reduction measures and targets.
