Development of the Food (Wales) Bill

Purpose of the consultation

Purpose of the consultation

On 18 July 2022, Peter Fox MS launched a consultation on a draft Food (Wales) Bill, inviting people to give their views on how the proposed law has been drafted. The consultation is scheduled to close on 9 September 2022.


The draft Food (Wales) Bill seeks to establish a more sustainable food system in Wales to strengthen food security, improve Wales’ socioeconomic well-being, and enhance consumer choice. The draft Bill will also provide a framework that enables a coherent, consistent and strategic cross-governmental approach to policy and practice on all aspects of the food system.


This consultation now seeks views on the draft Bill and on the policy objectives contained within it.
