Food And Drink Initiatives In Scotland
Food issues appear to have featured high on the agenda thus far in 2008. Television programmes ranging from Jamie Oliver and the plight of chickens to “Kill it, Cook it, Eat it” have all sought to spotlight our production methods. Hungry for success, the healthy eating programme in schools, is doing well at primary level but could do better at secondary level. Scotland Food and Drink, the new organisation to return to fruition because of Scottish Food and Drink, goes to carry its 1st national conference and if all that is not enough, Richard Lochhead the Cabinet Secretary has announced his intention of creating a National Food Policy for Scotland.
The cynic in me tells me now we have seen all of this before. Endless talking shops and quangos spouting motherhood and apple pie, whilst using large quantities of taxpayer’s money and achieving little or no. Multiple retailers will still ultimately rule the roost, doing essentially what they please with processors and primary producers dancing to their tune before many surrender to the exhaustion of bankruptcy, takeover or simply fade away. Government won’t ever quite put its money where its mouth is and the hardy successful exceptions representing a minute a part of the Scottish food industry will probably be feted as heroes with the magic solution. This can all be done against the background of blaming Brussels for all our woes and two braid hairstyle a potential credit crunch.
The optimist says fantastic; we now have a new regime that is two braid hairstyle finally going to grip all these diverse groups that together make up the Scottish food and drink industry. We’ve got found someone to make sure a good crack of the whip to all parts of the food supply chain. Now we have someone with the vision and leadership to make sure that there’s a consistent supply of quality produce to sell both at home and abroad. Only Government with access to the required environmental and production levers can do that, especially in our less favoured areas. Only they can stabilise sectors subject to huge pressures of cost and pricing reminiscent of milk, pigs and poultry. Only they will prevent our beef and sheep sectors going into rapid decline.
It’s going to only happen however when buyers consistently and regularly elect to buy our products and are prepared to pay more for them because they believe they’re worth it, whether on quality, animal welfare, environmental or production grounds. Television programmes sensitise people to issues and cause a major response which is then normally pretty short lived. It rarely extends to commercial sectors and the general public sector is unmoved by such matters. Our vision and leadership must embrace this education backed up with concrete examples. It needs to transcend all governmental departments; health, education, enterprise and local authorities; and what is more is that it requires genuine buy-in from those involved. It truly must embrace the Governments ambition and make Scotland’s food industry contribute to making a wealthier, fairer, greener, healthier, safer, stronger and smarter Scotland.
