Tackling food systems challenges: the role of food policy

This briefing from the Centre for Food Policy at City, University of London outlines the history and importance of food policies (such as mandatory health warning labels, dietary guidelines, or bans on destroying food waste) in influencing the food system.

The report recommends several steps for making food policies more effective, equitable and efficient, including taking a systems approach, managing trade-offs between different goals, using the Sustainable Development Goals as a framework, and embedding food into many different policy areas.
