PUBLIC HEALTH Minister, Jane Ellison, is guest editing the November issue of Footprint magazine.
Featuring an exclusive thought leadership article on the Department of Health’s Responsibility Deal, the special edition will cover crucial issues around foodservice sustainability.
Ellison was first appointed Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Public Health in October 2013 and has been a Member of Parliament since May 2010. Most recently she has become the key advocate for the Government’s Responsibility Deal, driving calls for the food and drinks industry to improve their well-being credentials.
This is not the first time Corporate Sustainability Champions Footprint and the Department of Health have joined forces to voice the concerns of the food industry and take action to improve the Out Of Home (OOH) market. In July, Footprint held a Special Interest Group with the Department of Health which highlighted the need for greater support and recognition for foodservice companies already making a difference through initiatives around salt, sugar and fat reduction, while also highlighting areas in which efforts are still needed.
Charles Miers, Managing Director of Footprint, commented: “It is a pleasure to work with Jane Ellison as our guest editor for this October issue of Footprint magazine. The insight that Jane was able to share has great potential to drive change in the hospitality industry and makes for one of the most interesting issues we have ever published.
“Government policies and pledges such as the Responsibility Deal have made a powerful impact on how the issues of health and vitality are approached by the food and drinks industry, but there is still so much work to be done. Having the Public Health Minister as editor will provide an invaluable insight and viewpoint on industry news which I’m sure all our readers are eager to hear.”
The Footprint magazine started as a quarterly magazine in 2008 but has since grown to become the must-read bi-monthly publication for foodservice sustainability news. It covers all aspects of the foodservice supply chain, providing its readers with the very latest “green” products and procedures as well as an update on the Government policies.
