Food policy currently suffers from fragmentation: horizontally between portfolios of government; vertically between the multiple levels of food governance; along the stages of the food supply chain; as well as between policymakers and the people impacted by their decision-making. It is widely acknowledged that the gaps, overlaps and inconsistencies resulting from a disjointed approach are hindering attempts to address the current environmental, public health and social crises of the food system, and a more integrated approach, which forges new alliances, is required to overcome this ‘wicked problem’. For the purposes of this panel, integrated policy is defined as policy where health, environmental, economic and other relevant objectives are brought together in a jointly-formulated approach across these often competing domains, covering all stages of the food supply chain. However, we are also interested in approaches and ideas covering the related concepts of policy coordination and policy coherence
