The Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum aims to provide the premier environment for policymakers in Parliament, Whitehall and government agencies to engage with key stakeholders in timely discussion on public policy relating to food and nutrition. These include health professionals and representatives of the bodies they work for; businesses in the food supply chain and their advisors; local authorities and schools; consumer and other interest groups, and the voluntary sector; and academics and commentators, along with members of the reporting press.
In planning its programme of events, the Forum regularly consults Parliamentarians, senior government officials, regulators, industry representatives, charities and action groups, professional bodies and academics, local government and others.
The Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum is completely impartial and has no policy agenda of its own. Whilst we are grateful for the support and advice on themes that we receive from sponsors, all editorial decisions remain with the Forum in order to maintain impartiality.

Lots. The Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum is planning a very full programme for the next 12 months.
But as we're the ones others tend to follow, please give us a ring or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss future conferences.
