Investor Briefing: Why investors need to support mandatory reporting by the food industry

This investor briefing summarises the Government’s Food Strategy publication, released in June 2022 in response to the National Food Strategy recommendations made by an Independent Review published in July 2021.

It also provides information on the Investor Coalition on UK Food Policy that has, since July 2021, grown to include 23 investors representing £6 trillion in assets under management.

This coalition, facilitated by The Food Foundation and led by Rathbone Greenbank Investments, has written to the UK Government (twice) and met with ministers and government departments to emphasise both the business case, and their support for mandatory reporting of healthy and sustainable food sales by large businesses.

Watch the video below for a snapshot of why mandatory reporting is needed, and to find out more about a role in our Investor Coalition on UK Food Policy

This briefing makes the case for more investors to join the coalition and be part of a new formal channel of engagement between investors and the UK Government on food policy matters.
