We want to create a food system that is healthier, more sustainable, more resilient, and more accessible for those across the UK. Defra continues to work with stakeholders across the food system to explore increasing consumption of healthier and more sustainable foods, including fibre and wholegrains. We have discussed a range of options to help increase consumption of fibre, fruit and vegetables (including the role of public private partnerships) and will continue to engage with industry and experts in the weeks and months ahead.
