Better Food Traders

How can we build an alternative food system that is sustainable and resilient?

For 20 years, Growing Communities has demonstrated that it is possible to reduce the amount of energy, fossil fuels and resources it takes to feed a city, while at the same time creating jobs and community in both urban and rural areas andproducing delicious food that is good for people and the planet. Hard work – but worth it!

Now, working with the other Better Food Traders, this model is rolling out to other areas of London and elsewhere in the UK.

The model is shaped by a set of Key Principles, which are constantly monitored and reviewed and help to guide our work and operations.

As Better Food Traders, we believe that a sustainable and resilient food system should be built on these four principles.

Ecological food and farming

Transformative trade

Building community

Changing the big picture
