Good Food Nation (Scotland) Bill

Overview

The Bill requires the Scottish Ministers and certain public bodies (referred to in the Bill as ‘relevant authorities’) to create Good Food Nation Plans. 

The relevant authorities identified in the Bill are health boards and local authorities (or councils). Other public bodies may be required to produce plans in the future.
