This independent review will look at the entire food chain, from field to fork. This includes production, marketing, processing, sale and purchase of food (for consumption in the home and out of it). It will also look at the consumer practices, resources and institutions involved in these processes.

The review is lead by Henry Dimbleby supported by an advisory panel and Defra officials.
