Knowledge for better food systems

Current projects

The FCRN carries out integrative research into food systems and sustainability. By identifying emerging or controversial issues of concern and differing perspectives among stakeholders, we help to shape the wider agenda on food systems sustainability, within communities of research, policy and practice.

A collaborative project to define usable metrics for assessing food industry progress in delivering sustainable and healthy diets.

This one year project, a collaboration between the FCRN and the Food Foundation, has two main aims.  It will scope out the potential for developing a set of actionable, verifiable and industry-relevant metrics that define sustainable and healthy eating patterns; and it will build a multi-stakeholder partnership to advance the uptake of these metrics by those assessing food industry performance.
