EFRA Enquiry – Follow-up Call for Evidence on Covid-19 and Food Supply

Feedback’s response to the first EFRA Committee enquiry, in April 2020, on the impact of the pandemic on UK food supply highlighted how the Government’s response needs to go beyond measures to relieve immediate scarcity – though these are of course important and vital – to encompass action that will help to build a food system that is more resilient to future shocks, especially those posed by the ongoing climate emergency. In this follow-up consultation, we build on that argument and showcase where the pandemic has exacerbated inequality in UK food supply, particularly with fresh food access, food workers’ rights and policy that does not take into account the critical role of small, local businesses in creating resilient, local food economies.
