Event Details

Can we develop a whole systems approach to food sustainability in Staffordshire?

A food system that shortens and strengthens supply chains, attracts new entrants to the agri-food sector, increases job opportunities and business growth, retains more of the ‘Staffordshire £’ within the county. Provides greater opportunities for Staffordshire people, to grow, access, buy and consume fresh healthy affordable food, reduces food miles, food waste and improves community resilience.

We believe that together we can. So we are asking you to join us and other stakeholders from public, private and third sector organisations at this first Staffordshire Food Summit event. The purpose of the event will be to form a starting point for a joined-up partnership approach at a county wide level to transform food culture and systems to help tackle social, economic and environmental challenges.

Keynote presentations at the event will include an introduction to the UK-wide sustainable food cities movement and provide an insight as to how a countywide Lancashire local food partnership is driving positive change across their area.

A recent research study of Staffordshire’s agri –food sectors highlighted some excellent initiatives already happening across Staffordshire and suggested further potential growth areas. This event will provide a platform to share the results of the review and provide opportunities for wider discussions and networking, bringing together people involved with all aspects of the Staffordshire food landscape.

Through a selection of workshops we hope to identify joint priorities and willing partners to help drive this food agenda forward.

Discussion topics will include:

  • promoting a vibrant, sustainable food economy
  • developing knowledge, skills and resources
  • building resilient, healthy and active communities
  • tackling food poverty, diet related ill health and access to healthy food
  • catering and food procurement
  • reducing food waste and the ecological footprint

We look forward to seeing you at this event.

Places are limited so please book early. Invitations for workshop preferences and the final programme will be sent via e-mail following your reservation.
