Scotland is renowned for its quality food products, including salmon, beef and whisky. Food and drink is Scotland’s most valuable manufacturing sector in terms of exports.

At the same time, the diets of adults and children in Scotland are poor, with excessive levels of fat and insufficient fruit and vegetables. Significant dietary changes are required to tackle Scotland’s health challenges. Challenges exist too in terms of reducing significant food waste levels and the negative climate change impacts from food production processes.
