The Chair of the UK Food Standards Agency, Professor Susan Jebb, has announced that she will step down on 30 June 2024, when her three-year term of office comes to an end.

Dr Jebb said: “It has been a huge privilege to be the Chair of a fantastic organisation, doing such important work to uphold public health. I am proud of the work the Board has done to enable the FSA to move beyond the immediate consequences of EU Exit and settle into an organisation focused on the most pressing challenges the UK food system faces today, including initiating a series of important reforms.”

Over the next four months, she will continue to work on the FSA’s reform program to support businesses to uphold high food standards.

After leaving the FSA, Dr. Jebb intends to give her full attention to her work at the University of Oxford, where she is Professor of Diet and Population Health, leading a research team who are developing the evidence base for interventions to prevent and treat obesity.
