Press office

Journalists can contact us for expert spokespeople and accurate, evidence-based, practical information about healthy and sustainable diets.

Please note the press office email address is for media enquiries only. For other enquiries please click here.

During office hours (9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday) a nutrition scientist will be available to provide expert comments and quotes, discuss story ideas, and deal with enquiries regarding press, TV or radio interviews.

Please note: due to the current Government advice most BNF staff are not office based and so calls to our office number are being diverted. We are monitoring the press office email account and postbox accounts as normal so please email if you need to get in touch.

Out of hours service - the BNF also offers an out-of-hours Press Office service. If you need to get in touch in the evenings and at weekends please use the pressoffice@nutrition.org.uk address, which is monitored out of hours.
