Abstract

This paper presents a brief history of the changing food policy governance in the UK and highlights the gradual Europeanisation and Consumerisation of UK food policies. The paper discusses the complexities of the private interest model of food regulation and the role played by retailers in the food sector in trying to influence consumers. The impact of the establishment of the Food Standards Agency on the context and implementation of food regulation in the UK also forms the theme of discussion in this communiqué. The paper identifies five significant recent developments by way of which the State, corporate and private interests, consumers and social interest groups build relationships in response to the need for accountability within the UK agri-food chain, symbolising the development of a complex public/private set of associations, that is evolving as a result of the private, institutional and consumer pressures on food regulation.
