Abstract

The Food for Life Partnership (FFLP) is an initiative led by the Soil Association (SA), a non governmental organisation in the UK which aims to encourage a healthy, sustainable food culture in communities. The SA also runs a Catering Mark scheme that provides an independent endorsement that food providers are taking steps to improve the food they serve, using fresh ingredients which are free from undesirable additives and trans fats, are better for animal welfare, and comply with national nutrition standards. FFLP work in schools has already been shown a significant impact and FFLP has now been extended to hospitals, care homes, universities and early years settings.
