A new briefing from Peas Please highlights that vegetable production in the UK is at a 20 year low and we’re still not eating enough of it. In Scotland, the average number of portions of veg eaten in those aged 11yrs+ is 2.3. Not eating enough veg has been shown to lead to poorer health. The Peas Please initiative was set up due to our declining consumption of veg. The initiative aims to bring together farmers, retailers, fast food and restaurant chains, caterers, processors and government departments with a common goal of making it easier for everyone to eat veg. Our partners, Nourish Scotland, are working with Scotland based caterers, venues and food companies to make pledges for how they can make veg the easy choice. As we think about how to build back better, there is a real opportunity for actors and influencers across the food system to use this moment to support UK vegetable production and consumption.
