Executive Summary

This document reaffirms the Scottish Government's commitment to promoting the sustainable economic growth of the food and drink industry.

But it also articulates a new aspiration that Scotland should become a Good Food Nation, a Land of Food and Drink not only in what we as a nation produce but also in what we buy, serve and eat.

The Scottish Government wants food to be a key part of what makes the people of Scotland proud of their country - food which is both tasty to eat and nutritious, fresh and environmentally sustainable.

A proposed 2025 vision for what we, as a country, should be aiming to achieve.

Plans for a Food Commission and local champions to drive change.

Proposed priority areas such as food in the public sector, children's food and local food.

A commitment to a variety of approaches.
