Sir; As the Cabinet Office Strategy Unit's analysis shows, the issues facing food in the UK are complex and involve a multitude of social, political, environmental and economical aspects ('Thin people run up bigger bills for NHS', The Grocer, 5 January, p5). The industry would welcome a proper, integrated food strategy across the different Whitehall departments, regulators and agencies. As an industry, we have shown we are prepared to take leadership positions in responding to society's concerns - from environmental impact to our work to reformulate products. We hope our achievements will be recognised in the Strategy Unit's review of food and food policy - and that our willingness to be a constructive partner will be embraced.
