How can we ensure the future of our food supply, protect the environment and support the local economy at the same time?
As founder members of the multi-agency Herefordshire Food Partnership, the Bulmer Foundation has led the development of a Sustainable Food and Drink Strategy for Herefordshire, which is now available to download.
The strategy is a response to the challenges and opportunities which lie behind the production of food and drink in the County, now and into the future.
The Strategy identifies six key themes where it is believed that, working together, the food and drink sector could have a real impact on sustainability, these are:
Health and wellbeingThe environmentLocal distinctivenesskills and capacityPolicy influence
These themes form the basis of a set of Aims and Objectives and a subsequent Action Plan. Delivering the Strategy and Action Plan will now be the primary focus of the Herefordshire Food Partnership.
