Food security

Levy payers should be mindful of the risks that could affect their businesses and how they can continue to produce food sustainably and build the UK’s food security.

Food security is a key priority within the farming industry, especially in light of the cost of living crisis and the Russia‒Ukraine war.

Farm businesses are affected by food security issues in many ways. They include agriculture both in the UK and globally, sources of raw materials and foodstuffs, the full supply chain ‒ including manufacturing, wholesale and retail ‒ and the complex chain of inputs and logistics associated with food transport, as well as the affordability and accessibility of food and the confidence of high-quality, safe and authentic food.
