Presentation of WRR report 'Towards a food policy'

The Council presented its new report, ‘Towards a food policy’ (Naar een voedselbeleid) to the State Secretary for Economic Affairs on 2 October 2014.

In this report, the WRR analyses developments in the national and international food supply in recent decades and explores new problems and challenges. The report outlines the opportunities and vulnerabilities of the Netherlands as a hub in international food trade and describes the changing circumstances in which governments formulate and implement policy. Based on this analysis, the WRR outlines the opportunities for a Dutch food policy that is appropriate to meet the challenges in the coming decades.
