Overview —

A Common Weal food system would put our resources and knowhow to work more effectively to ensure that all of us in Scotland can enjoy a healthy and sustainable diet.

As a global food citizen, Scotland would reduce the environmental burden we place on the rest of the world through the way we produce and consume food; and we would share our agricultural knowhow, especially where it empowers communities to improve local nutrition and where it reduces the environmental impact of food production.

This paper proposes a transformation in our food system over the next generation, from one focused on production to one focused on sustainable nutrition.
