London Mayor Sadiq Khan has invited NFU Deputy President Minette Batters to become a member of the London Food Board.
Batters said: “I am delighted to be joining the London Food Board, which is instrumental in delivering and defining the new Food Strategy for London. As a board member I will be joining a team of highly respected businessmen and women to effect real change and help address London’s food challenges and opportunities.
“The London Food Board provides guidance and direction, tackling important issues such as food poverty, health, environmental impacts and food businesses.”
The appointment is a part-time commitment for Batters, running until the end of Sadiq Khan’s Mayoral term in May 2020.
