Monmouthshire Sustainable Food Partnership
Having grown and developed from local community action, the Monmouthshire Sustainable Food Partnership is a continuation of the good food movement already fostered by previous food partnerships and activity across the county.
The partnership provides a formal platform for organisations, businesses, producers and individuals who all have an interest in the sustainable food agenda across Monmouthshire. Current members include Coleg Gwent; Monmouthshire County Council; Brecon Beacons National Park Authority; Our Food (a not for profit organisation); Natural Resources Wales; NFU Cymru; Aneurin Bevan UHB as well as interested individuals.
Monmouthshire Sustainable Food Partnership intends to foster and develop activity that will facilitate a clear strategic vision, set priorities and undertake project planning, to achieve change in the food sector. It hopes to also increase support for education, training and workforce development as well as offering direct support to local producers and influence procurement in order to help increase access to healthy and nutritious food.
The partnership will build on the opportunity to directly engage closely with other organisations, individual, networks or partnerships that champion a direct shift towards a healthy and sustainable food system.
