Financial Risks in the Food System
A failure to shift towards healthier and more sustainable diets creates a range of different financial risks for food businesses – systemic, direct and transitional.
In the latest Plating Up Progress policy briefing we explore the material financial risks associated with a failure to make healthier and more sustainable diets affordable and accessible for everyone – systemic, direct and transitional – and the growing interest that investors are therefore showing in whether and how dietary transitions are being supported by businesses across their portfolios.
Investors are already showing an interest in the policymaking space related to dietary shifts, and we conclude that this interest is only likely to increase further. Policymakers therefore need to recognise investors as a key stakeholder group in their work.
