The overall context of the research project reported here has been to inform government policy development to reduce the environmental impacts of food consumed in the UK, within the context of the Food Industry Sustainability Strategy, the Sustainable Food and Farming Strategy and DEFRA's overall commitment to Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP). In addition the project sought to provide the basis for development of information on more sustainable food choices, information that is also likely to be relevant to the food industry and public procurers.
