Abstract
The Institute of Public Health responded to a consultation on the Northern Ireland Food Strategy Framework launched by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) in September 2021. The Framework sets out a long-term vision to develop a food system that protects natural resources for future generations, is economically and environmentally sustainable and provides safe, nourishing, accessible food enabling people to make informed healthy choices. Key Observations The Institute made a series of recommendations on the Food Strategy Framework for Northern Ireland. IPH would welcome a public health approach to food policy reflecting the principle of proportionate universalism, as well as the development of a regulatory framework for food products with an explicit policy goal of creating a healthier, more sustainable food environment that is accessible across the social gradient.
