The Minister said: This plan is all about action it sets out my vision that, by 2020, the quality of Welsh food will enjoy increased international recognition, food businesses will be more efficient and environmentally balanced with supply chains more integrated and adding far more value to our products here in Wales. I also hope to see consumers making well informed choices about the affordable and healthy food they need, leading to significant improvement in public health. The Minister also set out his intention to establish a Welsh Food and Drink Forum drawn from the industry to provide guidance, advice and a closer link between business and government. He explained that closer working between business and government is central to the plan, saying: I am confident that, although highly ambitious, the objectives set out in this plan can be achieved if government and industry work together. In fact, I am sure that we will achieve results that exceed our expectations. More detail on the plan will be available when the 12 week consultation is launched later this autumn.
