San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Announcing the secret Veg Project..
Peas Please is a ground breaking new initiative to make it easier for everyone to eat more veg. Because education approaches haven’t delivered the impact needed, Peas Please will bring together businesses and the public sector including farmers, retailers, processors, fast food chains and government, to solve supply chain barriers to veg consumption.
The initiative is being launched in London, Glasgow and Cardiff all at the same time. For the Cardiff launch please join us at Truffles, 3 Church St, Cardiff CF10 1BG
Agenda for Cardiff:
11.00am – Refreshments and Registration
11.10am – Welcome and introduction
11.15am- Veg Facts launch and Q&A
We will launch the project’s fact file revealing new facts about how much veg we are eating and producing in the UK, and what’s stopping us eating what we need. There will be a chance for some Q&A.
11.30am – The project so far
You will be shown a short video of our two-day veg retreat in Birmingham, attended by people working in leading businesses along the supply chain. The retreat looked at the barriers to veg consumption. We will hear, first-hand, from Katie Palmer from Food Cardiff about her experience in Birmingham.
11.45am – What’s already happening
During this session we will hear from audience members about the great veg work that’s already underway. We’ll have live Twitter feed, so we can see updates from the events happening simultaneously in Scotland and England.
12.00pm – What next?
You will be given a chance to sign the Peas Please Pledge for more veg and input into what you think needs to be done next to increase vegetable consumption in Wales and the UK.
12.15pm – Lunch and Networking
We will be serving up some delicious vegetable stew, thanks to the Community Land Advisory Service, for you to enjoy with time for networking.
We look forward to seeing you there.
