In Conversation With... Henry Dimbleby

CLA President Mark Tufnell interviews Henry Dimbleby, co-founder of restaurant chain Leon and a Non-Executive Director of Defra, on the National Food Strategy

Henry Dimbleby led the most comprehensive review of food in all its aspects in a generation. He published his proposals in two parts, in July 2020 and July 2021.

The UK Government has now brought out its own response, a Food Strategy which many have described as unambitious. In the new context of runaway prices and war in Ukraine, what is next for our food system?

In this insightful conversation Henry shares with us his thoughts on food security; land use and the environmental contribution and impact of food production; health, diets and access to nature.
