Food and Health Alliance
Thursday 22 September 2005
The Food and Health Alliance is managed by NHS Health Scotland and supported by the Scottish Executive and the Food Standards Agency Scotland.
The Alliance is a network for everyone in Scotland with an interest in food and health. It represents the range of stakeholders involved in implementing a multi-sector, food-chain based food and health strategy.
Membership includes a broad range of sectors such as national and local government, NHS health boards and Community Healthcare Partnerships, community planning, voluntary and community organisations, national governance organisations, research and academia, media, local enterprise companies and all food-chain organisations.
The aim of the Food and Health Alliance is to support the implementation of national food and health policy in Scotland.
This will be achieved by:
- effective communication between all stakeholders involved in food and health
- providing opportunities for debate
- sharing food and health evidence and information, for example promoting best practice
- learning and development opportunities
