The Government Chemist responded to the Call for Evidence for the National Food Strategy launched by Defra in June 2019. The purpose of this call for evidence is to gather inspiration to transform the UK food system and develop a National Food Strategy.
The Government Chemist responded to the consultation providing information about its expertise and current involvement in the areas of food allergy, food authenticity, environmental challenges and food innovation.
The Government Chemist, in view of the many synergies that the role has with the responsibilities of Defra, the Food Standards Agency and Food Standards Scotland, provided some general comments in the attached response document.
