England’s Food Policy Response to Covid : Review of policy issues and intervention
This report was produced as part of a project on England's food policy and food security, funded through Research England’s Quality-related Research Strategic Priorities Fund at the University of Hertfordshire. The aim of the project is to analyse England's food policy response to the Covid-19 pandemic, to gain insights into the current state of its food policy processes and operations. A particular focus is the coordination of national food policy approaches, and their implications for food policy and food security going forward. This report presents a review of food-related issues and interventions related to the Covid-19 pandemic. An accompanying journal paper focuses on the role of coordination in the response. The report has two main parts, the first presents issues and interventions, using the different segments of the supply chain as an organising framework. Part II presents a timeline of interventions between March-September 2020, with a primary focus on government policy interventions.
