Mandatory business reporting to accelerate the food industry’s transition to healthy and sustainable food

A lack of basic, transparent data within the food industry is currently hindering progress towards healthy, just, and sustainable food systems. Businesses need good data to drive improvements in their own operations and supply chains, investors need good data to understand risks and opportunities related to the companies they invest in, and governments need good data to assess progress towards national targets.

This briefing recommends four approaches that the UK Government should take to strengthen business reporting requirements, and identifies which specific elements of policy on healthy and sustainable diets are applicable to
each approach.
