Knowledge for better food systems


Plating Up Progress: New Investor Briefing

Plating Up Progress, a project run jointly by the FCRN and the Food Foundation, has launched its second report proposing metrics for assessing progress towards healthy and sustainable food. 

The briefing focuses on the risks and opportunities food retailers, caterers and restaurants are facing regarding urgent health and sustainability issues. Sitting at the end of the supply chain as they do, they are potentially at the sharp end of regulatory or market-driven changes that affect food supply, prices and demand for new products. They’re also the channel through which most commercially produced food is funnelled, so are the best indicators for whether meaningful shifts are taking place in food industry.

Plating Up Progress demonstrates that investors can identify opportunities and avoid risks by understanding how far food businesses are prepared for the transition to sustainable and healthy food, and puts forward the necessary metrics for assessing progress.

The Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) conducts, synthesises, and communicates research on food sustainability.

We inform and connect stakeholders with a common interest in building sustainable food systems.
