Footprint 40 – Henry Dimbleby

In this latest conversation we chat with National Food Strategy lead, Henry Dimbleby, co-founder of the Leon restaurant chain, the Sustainable Restaurant Association and London Union, which runs some of London’s most successful street food markets. In addition, Henry co-authored The School Food Plan (2013), which set out actions to transform what children eat in schools and how they learn about food. In March 2018 he was appointed lead non-executive board member of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Of the National Food Strategy, FSA Chair Professor Susan Jebb says “The National Food Strategy report deserves to be widely read and deeply considered by everyone with responsibilities for any part of our food system. Its compelling narrative focuses attention on the urgent challenges facing the food system and how we must work together, across government and industry, to create a system which is good for the health of people and the planet”. Hear his thoughts on the UK food system, food security and food in general.
