Kitchen Life 2 Working Group

Last updated: 12 January 2024


The working group, which has come to its natural endpoint, supported the innovative, cross-cutting, and multi-disciplinary research project Kitchen Life 2 (KL2). Kitchen Life 2 is the FSA’s award winning social science research project that aimed to better understand kitchen behaviours in household and food business kitchens. Fieldwork has ended and outputs have been finalised for this project, with the publication planned for September 2023. Working group members supported the scoping of additional analysis to explore sustainability behaviours.  Further, the group attended a workshop in November 2022 to discuss the risky behaviours identified in the study utilising behavioural insights and have reviewed key outputs from the project, including the deep dive reports into the 7 identified risky behaviours and a technical report.  

The next steps for the working group will be to reflect on the impact, value and efficiency of the group’s activity on the KL2 project as a whole.
