Building a better food movement – Better Food Traders and transparency
August 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm BST
“A Better Food Trader is a food business trading for social purpose, not to maximise profit.” And in a context where 95% of food retail is sold through 9 supermarket chains, creating and sustaining better food enterprises rooted in social purpose – and ecological values – is vital.
So Better Food Traders have built a network which supports and amplifies the voices of food enterprises who share these values and have a mission to create better food systems locally. Their accreditation system enables those seeking to address the climate crisis through changing their food choices to buy food that is good for the planet and people
To find out more, please join us for this session! Natasha Soares from Better Food Traders will join us to introduce the network and share how you might benefit from getting involved. And as well as this, it’s going to be a great discussion as we will also be joined by two guests from the Open Food Network community who are already part of the Better Food Traders network; Alastair Cameron from Helston Local Food Hub and Duncan Catchpole from Cambridge Organic.
This will be a great opportunity to learn more ways we can work together to create a stronger, more connected food movement – and a fun space to network with your peers!
