Local Food

Buying local food is good for us (food is fresher, tastier), for the local economy (if bought from local retailers) and good for the environment - with lower food miles. This page will let you share information about where you can buy local produce and will also give you some seasonal recipes to try out.

Sustain has produced some Sustainable Food Guidelines for caterers, consumers and an edited version for children. All of these promote the value of local food as the most important aspect of sustainable food production and distribution.
