British Poultry Council launches Vision 2019 initiative

06 December 2018

UK, 6 December 2018 - As Britain looks forward to the much-awaited Government Food Strategy, the poultry meat sector wants to start a conversation about the role of responsible businesses in delivering a food system that leaves no one behind

The Vision 2019 initiative has been launched in order to start a conversation about the role of responsible businesses. According to the British Poultry Council (BPC), maintaining a secure supply of food for the entire nation is of paramount importance. 

BPC says: "Whilst we must ensure that we have access to the labour we need and frictionless trade, we look forward to discussing how responsible businesses can play their role in food security. We would like to hear your thoughts – please get in touch."

According to BPC, food - being a special case - should be treated as a national security issue, and be protected as such. 

BPC says: "Government must ensure that British food, and the quality it represents, stays affordable and available for all consumers at every price point.

"If we cannot support our own production, then there will emerge a two-tier food system with the average citizen forced to rely on imported food."

The British poultry meat sector is calling on the Government to devise an integrated food strategy that drives resilience and productivity in the food supply chain, combines agriculture, food, trade, immigration and social policies, and puts feeding people at the heart of society.
