We ensure our research informs the policy process through a range of different channels. Members of Rowett staff serve on advisory Committees such as The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) and we have regular meetings with key policy stakeholders to exchange information and ideas. Much of our research is relevant to key policy areas such as food and drink, food security, and obesity and weight loss/management
