The Plating Up Progress report from the Food Foundation tracks the progress of food retail and food service on setting and reporting on targets towards a healthy and sustainable food system. The dashboards can be used by policy makers, food businesses and investors.
The 2021 Plating Up Progress report found:
- Five out of eleven supermarkets have set targets for sales of healthy or healthier food.
- Two supermarkets now report on the percentage of their protein sales that come from plant-based products (Tesco 12% and Sainsbury’s 10%) compared to no supermarkets in 2020.
- Restaurants, caterers and wholesalers have been slower to report on sales-data, but four out of eighteen have a commitment to increase their sales of vegetables.
Plating Up Progress backs recommendations made in the National Food Strategy for the government to set mandatory reporting for sales of healthy and sustainable food.
