Yes, the pandemic is an opportunity to review our food system. But we are unlikely to take it. @DavidZeichner
Shadow Environment Minister @DavidZeichner thanks food workers for their efforts during the pandemic.
Many fear the Govt is looking at longer #foodsupplychains. Fewer farms here; more imported food. @DavidZeichner
I would like to see the Dimbleby Review lead the way redesigning our food system but Brexit may get in the way. @DavidZeichner
Billions of pounds of edible food is thrown away every year. @CorrinoHLTA
There was change in consumer shopping and eating behaviour coming even before lockdown @sdranyam
We had lots of food in the first weeks of lockdown but the problem was distribution @sdranyam
There were shortages in eggs and flour which indicated people were cooking at home more. The extra time made a difference in what and how people ate @sdranyam
Lots of wholesalers at @MarketFood have switched to box deliveries @sdranyam
The future - the link between #diet and #health is the big thing. Need to look at things right from the soil to fulfill our #nutrition needs. @sdranyam
Some #globalfoodsupply is needed to secure supply of a product such a salad 52 weeks a year. @sdranyam
There is a lot of innovation in #horticulture especially into #technology and #robots. @sdranyam
Brilliant brilliant briefings from @davidzeichner and @sdranyam. We are now opening up the debate.
Q to @Fourayes: what's the biggest threat in the supply chain?
A: 1. lack of clarity on Govt food policy 2. pressure on supply terms from manufacturers asking for up to 120 days credit 3. Price pressure from supermarkets.

We are heading into a storm; a very deep recession is coming and there will be pressure on costs and price. Businesses need to prepare by modelling their cashflow and taking action. Justin Moss, Accountant and Partner @mha_uk specialising in corporate finance.
Q: With predictions of high unemployment should the national food strategy address access to high quality food?

A: @davidzeichner food banks are saying they cannot cope with a food crisis. Financial support is needed for individuals. It is a financial issue, not a food issue.
Q: does the farming & food industry understand what it needs in terms of skills?

A: there is a lack of ability to take a strategic view on workforce development within orgs & nationally. How can you plan for a future when you don't know what the future holds? @PlumptonCollege
The #PickforBritain website saw 50k hits in the first weekend. @mumofaurelia
We need intelligent and technically-minded staff on farms because of the technological advances and robotics involved in harvesting. @mumofaurelia
Q: how will people look at food differently and value their health?

A: look after your nutrition and you have a healthy diet and a #healthylife. We should eat seasonal and local. Keep to local not global. People need educating about seasonality and food. @RosemaryShrager
We need food back on the curriculum to provide education into cooking, nutrition and seasonality @DanielZeichner
